The wonders of being grateful!

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I have two offerings for those of you who read my blog.  Please feel free to share this with others in your network.

Each of my offerings explores the idea of gratitude or gratefulness.  The first is a conversation with Brother David Steindl-Rast, a Benedictine Monk, that appeared on the program On Being (click here).  This is a wonderful, poetic exploration of his thinking about the practice of gratefulness.  His thoughts and words are mesmerizing.

The second piece is a short TED talk, at TEDxSF in 2013 by Louie Schwartzberg, a cinematographer, director and producer who captures breathtaking images that celebrate all aspects of life.  In this talk he unveils his project, Happiness Revealed.  It is a beautiful visual journey accompanied by the soothing voice and thoughts of David Steindl-Rast on the subject of gratitude.

So on this Thanksgiving, may we all be grateful for the one day we are given, the moment we are in.
