While mostly I find this sweetness in moments such as this, I also am moved and thrilled by some small gifts that come over facebook or email — little videos that show joy in action. So today I would like to share my favorites:
Free hugs around the world: See people in large urban areas, giving out free hugs to the at-first
Flash Mobs Dancing for Joy: What appears to be spontaneous tunes suddenly performed by crowds in busy places is actually choreographed splendid, making art in the least expected places. My favorite is “Doe a Deer” being performed by what seems like a cast of thousands in Central Station Antwerp (Belguim), and there’s also the Black Eyed Peas and thousands dancing in Chicago, much to the shock and delight of Oprah, students and staff dancing in the college union at Ohio State, Scots dancing at Aberdeen Station, students at Washington State University, and a Bollywood Flash Mob in Times Square.
