Gratitude TedxSF with Louie Schwartzberg – Inspiring!

This inspirational TedxSF talk with Louie Schwartzberg will shift your day, your perspective and your energy. The film included in this talk is one I wish every human being could experience. Thank you Donn Matlack for sending it my way, I am grateful.

As a young man Louie Schwartzberg did not have much money, what he did have was plenty of time on his hands, and a sense of wonder. It would take him a month to shoot a 4 minute roll of film. He has been shooting time lapse flowers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for over 30 years. The beauty of Mother Nature surrounds us on a daily basis and Louie has captured it. As an award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades providing breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials, Louie says, “To see them move is a dance I’ll never get tired of.” This beauty immerses us with the senses, and provides some of the food we eat. His words that follow on the video are music to my ears.

Included in this talk is a short film on gratitude and happiness. “Happiness Revealed” is a powerful gift to share with others. The words of wisdom from a child and an elderly man in the film, are one’s I wish to carry with me always, and to share with you. The music and cinematography reminds us to love ourselves, each other and every precious day, as if it is our first, and our last. Nature connects us to the Oneness in all life.

Here is a clip of the nature documentary, Wings of Life, recently released. For the full film with Meryl Streep visit Amazon.
