This video is three years old, but I just saw it and it moved me. I believe this is the greatest kind of love, the kind that makes the mundane magical and the banal beautiful. It’s the romance of everyday living with someone whose very presence makes the ordinary seem extraordinary.
From the YouTube description:
Danny Perasa and his wife, Annie, came to StoryCorps to recount their twenty-seven-year romance. As they remember their life together from their first date to Danny’s final days with terminal cancer, these remarkable Brooklynites personify the eloquence, grace, and poetry that can be found in the voices of everyday people when we take the time to listen.
This is for anyone who thought they weren’t good enough and maybe never would be. For anyone who considered giving up before they even started. For anyone who ever needed someone to believe in them and show it.
But most importantly, it’s for anyone who can make a difference by helping someone else–which means this is for everyone.

DJ/VJ and Audio Visual Artist Brett Belcastro created an awesome remix video using over 80 scenes from movies and TV shows to entertain and inspire viewers to find peace within their minds. And entertain and inspire it does!
As a huge movie buff, I appreciate how Brett used pop culture to share the power and importance of meditation.
From the Vimeo page:
“The idea for this video remix came to mind about a year ago while I was listening to a guided meditation by the Deepak Chopra. I was so inspired after attending his ‘Seduction of Spirit’ seminar this past April that had decided to create this video.
In April of 2012 I myself had such a ‘spiritual awakening,’ a dramatic shift of perception in my conscious awareness during the 3rd time I had ever mediated, that I just knew I had to share the experience.
Since that moment it has a personal mission of mine to share my new found passion for meditation with this many people as I can.”
It’s my pleasure to help support that mission…enjoy!
This is not only an adorable video with a great message, it’s also for a good cause.
When this video reaches 1,000,000 views on YouTube, The Better Worldians will fund surgeries allowing ten children to walk for the first time.
This campaign is part of their mission to build a caring, positive community of people that work to change the world—the BetterWorldians Community.
Their partner in this “Color with Kindness” campaign, CURE International, is a nonprofit organization that operates hospitals and programs in 29 countries worldwide. They have seen over 2.1 million patients, provided over 150,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 6,600 medical professionals.
