    Allison, thank you for sharing this inspiring video. I’ve often wondered what the woman who breathed so much life into Chloe would be like in real life. Judging from the content of your website, I can say that you do not disappoint. Thanks for being one of the lights that make our world shine. I wish you only the best. Take care.

      Hey, this blog/site is taking off again with lots of interesting, new thoughts shared by lots of compassionate, new people to read – something to “give true thanks” for for sure!

    It is a gift to be able to breath without pain. To eat without sickness. So many things we take for granted. We are all blessed beyond measure and this video speaks to everything real.

    Beautiful, thanks for drawing attention to this, for reminding us of who we are. The heart of the message that comes through all art forms is love and gratitude. It’s the one thing that intertwines all of humanity, the one thing that moves us, our greatest commonality. Forever stay in wonder, curious and amazed.

    Makes you wonder why there are still atheists out there…

      People like Richard Dawkins consider our eyes and the colours of flowers to be nothing more than bye-products of the highly competitive natural process of trying to ensure that genes are passed on from the current generation to the next generation; a process introduced in Dawkins’s”The Selfish Gene” in 1976. Prettier flowers attract more bees and so they thrive, and animals with good eye-sight hunt and eat more easily and thrive too. Atheists like Dawkins see no need to jump from these observations to any kind of God. I do not (as someone who is very spiritual) agree with their ultra-rationalist approach, but I can (as a professional scientist) understand its purity.

        Correction: For ‘they thrive’ read ‘their genes thrive’ (I got the paradigm wrong).

    It was so amazing and inspiring, having the first images of how plants grow and then the two perspectives of completely different worlds but a same thought.. Love your posts 🙂

    Thanks for sharing, Allison. It is always humbling to be reminded of the vast, diverse, complex and deeply inter-connected beauty of ‘Nature’, and so be led to contemplation of the place and role that one holds within it.

    All I can say is “oh my God.” Nature is just so beautiful and we take it for granted every day. No one stops to look and be amazed by the beauty of nature any more. We just go through our lives so quickly, that we don’t take the chance to enjoy life. I’m glad I watched this video. Has given me an even better perspective on life.

    My name is Dean, I just found out today that we lost a wonderful person and a wonderful actress in this world. It’s a shame that she’s gone, I enjoyed watching her on Smallville, she was so energetic. I bet she’s enteraing all of the other angels in heaven. I am one of her bigest fans, and always will be.
