    80% of the information we receive comes through our eyes. We so rarely mindfully look at the little things around us and take a moment to appreciate them. Each day is a gift and the only appropriate response is gratefulness – as so eloquently captured by the master time lapse filmmaker Louie Schwartzberg – well worth watching – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXDMoiEkyuQ.
