Life is easy. Why do we make it so hard? Jon Jandai at TEDxDoiSuthep


The last time I posted a video was in December. I select the material & post only what is in my eyes valuable information so, when I found this in the first comment of Theecograndmablogspot.com from “Cat” I had to share it with all of you.
It opened my eyes to a way of thinking that was always there had but had to be reminded of & had to be brought back into focus…
Enjoy it!

About TEDx, x = independently organized event

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Don’t you like those lazy summer days
Where going out for a stroll means
Leaving the trail of uncertainties
Behind, enjoy life’s miracle and
Exquisite grace, unfold at
Its own pace…

And all you need is rain (Trees 6. Final) 3.6.2013


And all YOU need... ©copyright2013owpp

And all YOU need…
©copyright2013owpp

This is the final of a series…The end of a photo collection carefully chosen for a project very close to my heart, the tree project.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did bringing it to completion.

And all you need is rain
——————————

The artist clamors your abstract
Your depiction of natural history
Monet invents the layout of his …
The picnicker requests your stool
The bird liens a nest.
The parking lot… A division
Towns, parks, solicitate your flourish
And all you need is drops of rain.
