This Small Planet

As the London Olympic games came to a close last night I watched this video. It's the video by Matt Harding that "went viral" several years ago. When I first saw it I just sat and cried. Actually, I always cry when I watch it. I love replaying it over and over and watching all the different dancers in each frame.

Last night I also discovered that Matt recently put out a new video. This one is equally beautiful and made me cry too! (I'm thinking maybe I cry easily?!) 

At the end of this one he dances with his wife and son in their backyard and oh my goodness it is soooo sweet.

"For, in the final analysis, our most basic common
link is that we all inhabit this small planet.
We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our
children's future. And we are all mortal."

– John F. Kennedy, in a speech about disarmament
  at American University, June 1963
