No Subtitles Needed

My first-ever posting of an advertisement. If I’m going to let someone hawk their wares on my blog you know it’s something beautiful indeed.

Rustic Reflections

[Do not adjust your audio, the movie is silent.] Several inches of picturesque snow today, with the promise of a whole bunch more tomorrow and Wednesday. Thank goodness that Sonali and Micah and I went to the Biltmore Estate yesterday and took a rapid .001 mph stroll partway around Bass Pond, most of which involved…

Puddle Love

[I believe the original source of this video is David Neils.] When was the last time you romped or frolicked? When no one was watching or cared and you just cut loose with your bad self? Was it prompted by joy or merely the cause of joy? Or both? Who cares which?! Splash in those…

Dance Like No One’s Watching…

…even if someone is. I don’t think she was actually listening to Abba’s Dancing Queen, although the beat is close enough and the lyrics apropos. But that surely doesn’t matter: the joy here is her small moves, her hand flourishes, the self-contained boogie that occasional throws a kung-fu punch for punctuation. I have no idea…

On the Run

You’ve probably already seen this in six other places on the web. I don’t care. Watch it again, in HD, full screen. See a cheetah in all its cheetahness cheetahing. So beautiful. A Year Ago: Cat House There was a man who loved cats… [read more]
