Free Hugs: The Music of Nature, Part 2!

I love discovering and learning about all of the wonderful ways that nature communicates with each other, through mostly silent and invisible means. There’s an actual symphony of interspecies and ecosystemic communication going on all the time that we, humans, are rarely aware of. I find this comforting. Nature is vastly intelligent and interesting.

In the following video, Traubeck reveals an ingenious method of turning a simple slice of wood into a beautiful unique musical arrangement based on its life rings. Who knew? Amazing!

Thanks, Greg. I’m sitting here crying even though I don’t have a child in the armed forces. But I can certainly imagine how it would feel, hence the tears. I will be even more grateful on Sunday to have my two with me and my grandchildren as well. Thank you.

Susan had just watched our Mother’s Day video, available here.
If you haven’t seen it, grab a tissue and take a few moments to make your day.

Gratitude is a very wonderful quality. Thank you for your sensitive and awesome comment, Susan B! TMTM Army Member #39!

Free Hugs: The Music of Nature, Part 1!

It’s true: plants communicate to their environment through electrical energy.

In research that has been ongoing since 1976, plants emit signals in reaction to external stimuli and to communicate with everything. These signals are detectable as variations in the bio-electrical field of the plant and can be converted into a MIDI signal (Musical Instruments Digital Interface).

Watch and hear this remarkable video entitled “Singing Plants of Damanhur” for your, perhaps first, concert with a living plant organism!

Free Hugs: Haircuts For The Homeless!

Several years ago Mark Bustos visited the Philippines and saw first hand the plight of the poor and homeless. Moved with compassion, he chose to use his talent as a pro hairstylist to offer free haircuts to the homeless. Watch what happens when he encounters a proud man of Apache Indian heritage who has never allowed his hair to be cut before.

Mark, what you are doing is valuable. You are awesome!

People Are Amazing: Gravity Genius Michael Grab!

Michael Grab has a very unusual talent. Somehow, someway he finds the center of balance of organic objects and stacks them on top of each other. The result is amazing, and hypnotic. Try this for yourself (just to find out how incredible his ability is).

Enjoy the work of Michael Grab, with spoken words by Alan Watts.

Awesome Comment of the Week: Lucy H.

Nurse
This awesome comment came to us from TMTM Army Member #67, Lucy H. She had just watched the inspiring and touching post, People Are Amazing: Dancing Nurses Brighten Cancer Patient’s Day!

This made my heart sing! Lovely post Greg. Laughter IS the BEST medicine is so much more than a saying!

I nursed for many years and my favourite film Patch Adams was/is the most inspirational reminder for me of just how human compassion and the art of true empathy is found at the heart of every REAL nurse. Nursing when done properly and from the heart is so much more than simply delivery of care.

Understanding the vital importance state of mind can play on a person young or old should be an integral part of healthcare training. Like Patch I was often metaphorically rapped on the knuckles by the hierarchy for my antics and my sense of humour with my patients – I quietly ignored each and every one of their outdated ill informed rants on every occasion and continued to use humour as often as I could because my patients loved it, were happy, felt cared for and trusted that I was truly on their side. This level of involvement of course also produced a wonderful byproduct.

Nursing is by it’s very nature an intensely emotional and often sad profession with high levels of stress. You can’t bring happiness to someone else without it also helping you and so I think it often helped me cope in a notoriously unsupported profession when particularly difficult cases arose. I left nursing ten years ago but still use humour at every given opportunity especially as a tool to assist me as a parent!

Thanks for being so articulate, caring and inspirational, Lucy!
