Not exactly writing related, but a lovely video by Ze Frank featuring a whole lot of jelly beans:
Of course this reminded me of Our Town and Mrs. Dalloway (because everything reminds me of Our Town and Mrs. Dalloway). Our lives are filled with all of these seemingly insignificant jelly bean moments. Make each jelly bean count–not necessarily by climbing Mount Everest or saving orphans from fire (okay, at least call 911)–but by appreciating and recognizing each bean. We only have so many beans and we need to appreciate them while we can.
This week, let’s try to acknowledge and appreciate our beans as much as possible.
