Every building feels spiritual

A building wall in the Miami Street Art district.

Every building feels spiritual.

Why?

The artistry is prolific.

And unique.

And diverse.

And it restored vitality where there was once rampant decay and crime.

How Can You Tell?

Give pure humanity and see what happens

La'Porsha singing Diamonds
A single mom trying to break free from her situation.

 

While icing my calf yesterday afternoon, i watched the American Idol recording from the night before. Contestant La’Porsha disrupted the show with a stunning performance.

When judge Keith Urban finally got to speak he referenced a beautiful quote:

“I judge myself not on what i have but what I am willing to give.” What you just gave was pure humanity. It was beautiful.

As if that wasn’t enough, Kelly Clarkson brought everyone to tears three songs later.

PS. Couldn’t find the quote’s (the Keith referenced) author.

PSS. i cried during both songs.

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Please pardon the profanity

Disney Customer Service Speaker jeff noel
The Internet makes the spread of messages easy.

 

Please pardon the profanity…every so often something is in our path that the first spontaneous words out of our mouth are, “Holy sugar bear”…

This is one such moment.

(update 09.28.15…the video link below isn’t working at the moment. Sorry. Please use your imagination for something great…maybe the Pope’s visit to America.)

Jesus would be smiling, clapping and humming along to this.

Only the mediocre are at their best everyday

mediocrity
jeff noel has said this for years in his bio, “Allergic to most pollens and mediocrity”.

 

There’s a common sense notion that we change nothing until we change ourselves.

Deep down inside, we know this.

But what if we fail?

Well, we surely fail if we do nothing or do it half-baked.

Here’s to you. Today is your day. Expect an opportunity where you normally wouldn’t.

If he’s smart.
