today I'm inspired #1

I remember the first time I saw this video, sometime last year. Utterly impressed and speechless I emailed it to my surf crazy boyfriend so he could marvel at it as well.

Yesterday by chance, I stumbled upon that email and had a look at it again.  In a way, watching this video made me brutally aware of how limited my own talents really are. How sometimes, all you can do is watch from the sidelines, in awe, and be deeply impressed.

The pictures, the music, the narration, the voice, the accent; it's just all so beautifully and perfectly in tune. To me, this is magic.
