DREAMS ARE WHISPERS FROM THE SOUL ~ INSPIRATIONAL!

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES1“Dreams Are Whispers From The Soul” video was uploaded by simpletruthstv on May 26, 2009.


Two of my favorite quotes from this lovely video are ~

RUST COLOURED PEAKS2Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and follow where they lead.” – Louisa May Alcott

 
ROOSEVELT2The future belongs to those who believe in their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
 
 
 
 
 
POEM GREEN FORESTWe have a dream inside ourselves,
A gift to us at birth,
To guide us and protect us,
On our journey on this earth.
 
We all have something special,
Each one of us unique,
You have to find the courage,
To find the peace you seek.
So dream your dream and live your dream,

Don’t be afraid to try,
Just take your soul by the hand,
And let your spirit fly. – Maureen Weiner, Australian poet
 
SUNSHINEI hope that the video has inspired you and will lift your spirits and warm your heart.

LISTEN TO YOUR (PENGUIN) HEART ~ HOW PRECIOUS!!!

EMPEROR PENGUINSPHOTOPAD

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART ~ Mike Rowland, Film by Ruedi & Priska Abbühl Uploaded on Jan 29, 2011

Credit for this beautiful Emperor Penguin film goes to Ruedi & Priska Abbühl… And the Music … All glory goes to composer Mike Rowland from the album “My Elfin Friends,” who is currently compiling a book about the power of healing through music…I have the impression that to penguins, man is a different kind of penguin, unpredictable, occasionally violent, but tolerable company when he sits still and admires Nature and leaves it as he found it. ~Aetopus/AC

ANTARCTICA GLOBE FUZZY BORDER WHERE PENGUINS LIVE: Penguins do not live in the Arctic. They live on the shores of Antarctica and they also live in the south of Australia, New Zealand, America & Africa. The most northerly place that penguins live is on the Galapagos Islands which is near Ecuador in South America. Even though there is ice in Canada and the Arctic, penguins don’t live there or in the northern half of the world.

PENGUIN LIFE CYCLE LARGE IMAGENo other animal other than penguins can draw attention to the environmental damaged caused by oil and gas drilling (fracking and mountaintop removal), my reason for ending this video with the message “NO TO ARCTIC DRILLING!” ~Aetopus/AC
Please see my previous blog, “Fracking Hell ~ A Catastrophe!”                    

Here is a great YouTube video, “Birth and March of Emperor Penguins“, from Nature’s Great Events – In the coldest part of the planet, Emperor Penguins breed and give birth to their young, only to begin a great march toward the coast.

VIDEO ICONCROPPED

WORLD WATER DAY 2013 VIDEO – A MUST SEE!

WORLD W DAY 2013

I came across a remarkable video, “World Water Day 2013”, posted by Haruna Akashi to YouTube.  Nako Akashi, a young 15 year old student in Japan produced and narrates the video herself.  I’m so impressed with Nako’s work that I feel her insight on water’s impact on our world, should be shared.

Nako is a junior high school student who enjoys music, painting, designing and photography. The devastation of the March 11, 2011 tsunami in Japan had a profound effect on Nako and she says, ” It’s time for us to help the water. The power of just one person may seem very little, but it all counts – one for all – all for one. I believe this is the international rule for everyone.”

My comments to Nako on her video: ‘Congratulations, Nako, on your remarkable video.  I feel your work is award worthy!!! I’m so impressed that I am going to present your video on my blog to celebrate World Water Day 2013.  Best of luck in all your future endeavours.  You are a wonderful ambassador for Japan as a young person with deep-felt compassion and vision.  You will find my blog on WordPress as Rainsoftottawa.’

AMAZING, INGENIUS, YOUNG GLOBAL ENTREPRENEUR

LUDWICK MARISHANE2Student Ludwick Marishane invented a waterless bathing lotion and was named the 2011 Global Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award – all because he didn’t feel like taking baths. One day Ludwick Marishane and his best friend were sunbathing in the sweltering heat in their native Limpopo. Marishane’s friend turned to him and said, “Man, why doesn’t somebody invent something that you can just put on your skin and then you don’t have to bathe?” Marishane, 17 at the time, thought: Yeah, why not? It took six months of research to develop a formula for a lotion that cleanses cheaply and easily – especially important for the 2.5 billion people worldwide who lack proper access to water and sanitation.

Ludwick Marishane: A bath without water

DRYBATHIf you had to walk a mile for a jug of water every day, as millions of people do, it’s unlikely you’d use that precious water to bathe. Young entrepreneur Ludwick Marishane tells the amazing, funny story of how he invented a cheap, clean and convenient solution: DryBath, the world’s first bath-substituting lotion.

DryBath has the same effect as anti-bacterial cleanser, but it’s odorless and creates a biodegradable film that cleanses and moisturizes the skin. Five years later, it’s now available on the market. Marishane has since enrolled at the University of Cape Town in South Africa.
