Julie's Cry Video

Again, while cleaning out my email box, I found a link that my Aunt Kathy sent that I was never able to check out because our computer was having problems with Adobe reader. So I clicked on the link and watched this video. Part way through I started bawling and couldn't stop. Matt was baffled. Watch it now.

At first I was like - what's this weirdo doing. But I liked it. Then when all the people rush in to join him - that's when the tears started. I feel like this guy gets it. We are all the same. No matter where we live, what color we are, what we wear, we're all human, and similar. They are all having a blast. (Except for that Korean guard guy - what's his problem?) Anyway, I don't know if the feelings watching this gave me were the intention of the film makers. But I like the effect anyway. I wonder what the words to the song are.

Update: It said in the credits that the song lyrics are adapted from a poem by RABINDRANATH TAGORE

Stream of Life

The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day

runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures.

It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth

in numberless blades of grass

and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.

It is the same life that is rocked in the ocean-cradle of birth

and of death, in ebb and in flow.

I feel my limbs are made glorious by the touch of this world of life.

And my pride is from the life-throb of ages dancing in my blood this moment

That's awesome!!!! It's like 'where's waldo.' I tried to find him among the crowds. P.S. I wish I had money to do all that traveling.

That was very nice. I didn't cry, but I probably would have if I was pregnant or hormonal in any way. That is just hats off to you though, I liked being pregnant and all the feelings it brought. I felt closer to God and closer to humanity.

I loved India, the colors they wear there are so completely amazing.

I cried too Julie and no pregnant hormones here. It was a sweet reminder that we are all in this life together, and why not dance a jig! I bet his arms and legs are tired, and he must one rich bugger to be able to go so many cool places. Maybe the gum people paid for him to do his thing all over the world.

I had seen that before but, it didn't have sound...or the computer I watched it on didn't have sound. I thought it was cool at that time...but, it is SO much cooler with the song and I'm glad you updated and had the lyrics translated. That is an awesome video and song! Didn't cry, but smiled really really big!
