I spent the weekend with some amazing artists and thinkers on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. Michael Gelb, a best selling author, thinker and doer was one of the participants. He helped us unpack the life and principles of Leonardo da Vinci for insights that we might embrace for ourselves. It truly was life changing.
Michael just sent me this YouTube video about the oldest Holocaust survivor, Alice. Alice will celebrate her 107th birthday shortly. She is a concert pianist brimming with hope and inspiration.
It made me think of one of the most important books in my collect by Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning. Like Alice, Frankl was himself a survivor and also an accomplished psychotherapist. In his book, he explores how people survive under the most dreaded conditions. His findings may surprise you. But for now, take a look at this short video about Alice, you won't be sorry. She is full of heart and joy despite all that she has endured. How can we make that mindset a part of our narrative? (go to this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlccsLr48Mw)
