Let's view it as a verb.
CULTURE: - to grow in a prepared medium.
Jose Calderon's TED talk is incredibly moving. He talks about working with your hands and working with your mind, language learning, a life of service, family and sharing with the next generation. He's a fan of actively creating the culture you'd like to see . . .listen in.

This is such a great page on Facebook. Do you know it? It seems there are so few really authentic exchanges between people but every one of these is real and raw and many are truly touching. The comments too from other humans, not only from New York, but from all over the world, are great too !
Enjoy and check it out - there's a website also.

Introducing . . . . drum roll, Please . . . . Mr. Lee Camp ! He's one of the checks and balances in a democratic system. BTW, so is Russel Brand from the UK and so was Bill Hicks! Check them out on YouTube.

First thing this morning on Twitter I discover that dear Mickey Rooney has passed away at 93 having had an incredible 80 year career in film and entertainment.
R.I.P. Mickey Rooney.
Feeling sad about this passing of another truly wonderful human being I then turn to FB to share this news but find a message from a friend who shared this link about an extraordinary event recently.
Sir Anthony Hopkins composed a beautiful piece of music 50 years ago and heard it for the first time in a surprise performance by Dutch violinist Andre Rieu (who was just in Prague). The music is lovely. It was a beautiful gesture to make this event happen. The piece is called "And the Waltz Goes On'.
I don't know what is more extraordinary; Mickey Rooney's life and personality, the surprise of discovering Anthony Hopkins composed music too or the beauty of sharing . . . My heart is full. Thank you.
