Where's Matt?

And if you're discouraged from thinking about elections, or the state of the world, or the economy, I have just the non-partisan antidote for you. Watch this video:

We've all been kind of obsessed with it. The first two times I watched it I cried tears of joy. And then we all watched it together, lots of times! And we still love it. And the last time we watched it, I was trying to get a better look at where the filming took place for the San Francisco shot....and I still am not sure where it took place because we all got sidetracked by recognizing friends in it! After you watch it several times you can look at the San Francisco shot and find the girl with long dark hair in the front on the right, and that's Jesse, and behind her with short light hair is her mom Robyn. Hi Jesse and Robyn! Cool to see you in such a cool video!

Thank you for posting this. It made me laugh and cry (oh, the hormones!), and, for whatever reason, think about it as a metaphor for monasticism: doing something different from the rest of the world most of the time, but then having people join in what you are doing.

I'm so glad this is making its way around like a happy virus!

How wonderful that dancing all over the world brings us such joy! I too laughed and cried just for the pure reason of hope and innocense.
