When given a gift, the only appropriate response is gratefulness. Life is a gift.  Each day is filled with blessings — just by our presence, we are able to express our gratitude.

I’m grateful I can spend time in nature capturing its many beautiful moments. Still, for many, it is easy to miss the beauty of nature. Many do not have the opportunity to spend time out in nature. However, through the time-lapse photography of Louie Schwartzberg’s we can experience the stunning beauty of nature. (See Moving Art by Louie Schwartzberg)

Louie Schwartzberg is an award-winning cinematographer, director, and producer whose notable career spans more than three decades providing breathtaking imagery for feature films, television shows, documentaries and commercials.

The following video is a TEDx San Fransisco presentation, which includes his short film on Gratitude and Happiness, reminding us of the precious gift of life, and the beauty all around us.

  1. Isn’t it strange how we so easily forget…

  2. Reblogged this on Becoming is Superior to Being and commented:

    For several hours yesterday, “Kenne’s Wi-Fi” was down thanks to our Internet provider, Comcast. There were problems with the Xfinity modem that I connect to “Kenne’s Airport Time Capsule which provides the wifi in our home and stores my digital world. The outage reminded me of how grateful I am of all the X’s and O’s that allow me to share our world — Life is a gift. I have posted several entries on “gifting” over the years. This is one that I frequently return to that includes a TED Talk by Louie Schwartzberg gratitude and some of his beautiful time-lapse photography illustrating the stunning beauty of nature. — kenne
