I assume it best fits in here. At least I found it uplifting when I saw this short film about Karakuri.

Another one I stumbled across this weekend when I was listening to the classic radio station I'm used to listen to.

I do like this advertisement of a German DIY store. Not only because I’m a bit Gothic myself but also because this spot does come in layers, at least for me. To me it shows society a mirror of what our society is like these days, but also how “beautiful” things could be if everyone would be free to do what one once to do.

Anyway, the slogan of the advertisement is something along the lines “Say it through your project”.

I have liked this commercial from the first time I saw it. I do not know whether it is my inner Goth (High School), the fact that I feel being part of the pastel mafia is just boring, or the amount of love the father shows to his daughter. All three of these are equally important in my heart. The fact that it was the German equivalent of Ace Hardware is even more impressive.

Though, on the fence, I would have used a black primer since it was a wrought iron fence. But, that’s just the painter in me.

There is one take a Feng Shui colleague of mine shared with us at the last seminar and I found it quite nice, if not to say uplifting!

He said, when he is asked “How old are You?” he doesn’t reply with his age mainly due to that it sounds limiting. He replies to this question in the following way and as I don’t know his age I will put in mine: “I travelled around the sun 37 times.”
As I said, this answer feels to me light and uplifting and I’m fully with him and his “explanation” that it is fully up to us how many times we decide to want to travel around the sun. There doesn’t need to be a limit, does it?

So, in this way: “How many times have You already travelled around the sun?” ;)

You have got to love friends who know you enjoy Star Wars and the way they send holiday greetings...

I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of turkeys suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in the U.S. :-)

When I read this post, why did I first thought of Turkey!? - Not funny, I know, but that is what my mind made a connection to in the first place. -
