Human beings who inspire us.

Regular human beings who inspire us are all around.  Some are quite famous, while some are not. They include our neighbors who live courageously, who seek authentic lives everyday despite those barriers that spring up in the road.

My go to list of famous inspirational people has changed over the years. Here are my current favorites below. Well known by many and yet they truly are “regular” human beings. I think it is that sincere quality of authenticity which makes them so wonderful to read and listen to.

I do recommend them! Check out their podcasts, books, blogs, and videos. All are working steadily on changing the world for the better with intelligence, perseverance and courage. Each of them have traveled down very different pathways and yet they are speaking about the same core work. They continually ask the difficult questions and engage others in conversation. How can we discover and build a new world together based on human values right next to the old crumbling world? The work of creating change and making a difference wherever possible, while being quite human about it all. It is nothing less than saving our planet and preserving the future of humanity.

I have always thought that it’s okay to be a regular person. 😀

Circuits that snap together!

These circuits snap together with magnets! The neatest thing in electricity by Ayah Bdeir. I don’t recall ever using the word cute to describe circuits. Well, these are cute. They are also fun, and inspiring, which bodes well for learning.

What an easy way to introduce circuits with no  breadboards, solder, or screws required. Modular.

In case you do want to watch the 2014 Super Bowl XLVIII commercials again. Saving these for later. From what I have seen the sponsors have outdone themselves again.

The 2014 NFL Super Bowl Commercials

Everyone seems extra fired up about the Super Bowl this year. I will be supportive but I don’t have quite the zeal as “most” of the people I know. That’s okay! 😉

Seahawks won 43-8 over Denver. Seems like a trouncing.
