If you’ve been here before then you know Sundays on my blog are all about wonder and smiles. In honor of mentally kicking back once in a while, Sundays are Fun Days! Each Sunday, visitors will find a fun, interesting, or unusual something here. I’m a nerd with a complex sense of humor and absurd wit. It could literally be anything.
There’s so much strife in the world right now. Of all the clips one could find online to shine a light on our similarities rather than our differences, the fun videos by world-traveler Matt Harding do it best. They always make me smile…and occasionally a little weepy. 🙂
The song comes from the poem Stream of Life from Gitanjali — the Nobel-prize-winning collection by Rabindranath Tagore. Here’s the translation:
The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.
It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.
It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth and of death, in ebb and in flow.
I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life. And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment.
I’d say that sums up the point of this video nicely.
See the rest of the fun dances and discover how this began on Matt’s youtube channel.
