Richard Feynman talks about the beauty of a flower. Neil deGrasse Tyson describes looking up into the night sky and feeling connected to the universe. While Munari’s books about the sun and the trees bring me joy, the words of Feynman and Tyson in the following short videos, about 3-5 minutes each, reinforce my desire to indulge in exploring the mysteries of this life and to be open to the possibilities. I hope you have a chance to view them.

I’m sure there are much clearer pictures I can take over time but I kind of like these dreamy shots.  They stir my imagination.  And they remind me of the words of Joan Feynman, thanking her brother for giving her the aurora.  Hear her for yourself via this short Youtube video.
