I already think Gotye is amazing but after watching this video I'm totally in love with how talented he is, and I have a whole new appreciation for him. Plus, I think it should be my mission in life to bring a cool music park like the one at the beginning of this video, to our little town.
Okay, I love art and music and anything creative really.... I also love helping people. Combining the two is amazing. I mean, could it get any better? Check this out... but before you do, get the Kleenex out!
Thanks to everyone who sent in photos for the Gratitude Contest (which you can read about here). This is the latch batch of photos. Thank you for sharing your stories.

"My sister always tells me, when I am down or had a bad day : "Just put on your big girl panties and life will be easier." Or " Don't get your knickers in a knot girl, it solves nothing and makes you walk funny." My sister has a very large heart and always cheers me up. ~ Elly
"This is one of my latest paintings and I call it "Silver Lining". The meaning it has for me is to be grateful for the trials (clouds) in life cause there is always a silver lining to them. Life is always full of trials, and as someone says "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" or another favorite one of mine is "Woman is a like a tea bag, you don't know how strong she is until you put her in hot water." ~ Juhl
