THE AMAZING BRACO GAZE

A NEW POSSIBILITY OF TRANSFORMATION, HEALING & AWAKENING FOR HUMANITY HAS EMERGED . . .

Braco is able to convey a powerfully positive, loving energy to large groups of people at one time through his silent gaze. Braco’s gift pours through him and although he does not call himself a healer, over 10,000 people a day come to seek his gifts and acknowledge his amazing healing capacity through miraculous transformations and experiences. http://www.braco.net/

This cat & owl playing together video is so cool. It kind of reminds me of a screenwriter (the cat) trying to get Hollywood’s (the owl) attention: http://www.wimp.com/catowl/

THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY:

“Anxiety, hunger, fatigue, loneliness, thirst, anger and fear spur action to meet the competitive challenges we face. The anxiety we feel about whether we’ll succeed or not is evolution’s way of motivating us.” ~ Charles Darwin (from the Why Worry? It’s Good for You” article in the New York Times, May 14, 2011, by Robert H. Frank)

“The method of the enterprising is to plan with audacity, and execute with vigor; to sketch out a map of possibilities; and then to treat them as probabilities.” ~ Christian Bovee, (mid-19th century author & a founding member of the Athenaeum Club in New York)

“The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have too much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little.” ~ Franklin Delano Roosevelt

“Our wretched species is so made that those who walk on the well-trodden path always throw stones at those who are showing us a new road.” ~ Voltaire

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today? Today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.” ~ Babatunde Olatunji, who twice played at parties for Moondance in Boulder. (Famed African Yoruba drummer, known for his impassioned beliefs on social justice, film scores, and his close association with many American jazz greats, and Martin Luther King) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Babatunde_Olatunji

“When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced; live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.” ~ Cherokee saying

MOONDANCERS WRITE US:

“I’m glad to see Moondance is still dancing along! My film, which screened at Moondance, “My Mother Received a Wound”, is now on YouTube. Here’s the URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pfl52Gk4fK4 Thanks for everything you did a decade or so ago. Screening this short movie at Moondance remains one of my favorite creative experiences.” ~ Eric Bosse

“We are especially excited to submit our short film to Moondance because two years ago the script for it won a 2009 Starfish Award at the Moondance festival. It would be very exciting to see this project go the full cycle from an entered script to an entered film. We sincerely hope you enjoy the finished project as much as you liked the screenplay.” ~ Louis Rosenberg, Screenwriter & Sam Washington, Director
