Hannah Brencher believes in the power of pen and paper, and has started a global initiative, The World Needs More Love Letters, that encourages strangers to exchange love letters. This is a lovely idea and Hannah is a beautiful writer and storyteller.
In a fast-paced world, it is nice to see old-fashioned ideas coming back and how people are embracing them. There is nothing nicer than receiving something in the mail other than bills and junk.
Also the week Hannah gave her talk was a life-changing one for her as she says “I was offered a freelance position that allowed me to leave my full-time job. So I gave my TED Talk, and then I walked into my office Monday morning and quit. It was a transformational weekend.”
Last week, I received an e-mail from a Dublin startup called Meetingsbooker who are currently running a project called ‘My Favourite Meeting Place’ to discover the best meeting places in Dublin. One of my favourite places has to be the Chester Beatty Library.
It is in the centre of Dublin located in the grounds of Dublin Castle and listed in the Lonely Planet as “not just the best museum in Ireland, but one of the best in Europe”. In order to gain access you walk through the beautiful Dubh Linn gardens which is usually packed on a summers day. This is a lovely place to take a book and relax on a bench or have coffee on the grass with a friend. The museum is completely free and runs great events throughout the year. One of my favourite things to do lately is their monthly Qigong on the Roof Top Garden. The museum houses the collections of mining magnate, Sir Alfred Chester Beatty with a strong focus on the Orient showing his interest in Islamic, East Asian and Western Collections. They are always showing interesting exhibitions. Their beautiful Silk Road café with its middle-eastern dishes is also worth checking out.
It’s definitely worth checking out – don’t just leave it for the tourists.
Don’t these just make you want to get up and dance?

Sassy Toddler does RESPECT

Max Zoghbi, filmmaker, made this beautiful short film entitled Wildflower to propose to his girlfriend Bonnie Kate. Bonnie Kate was one of the victims of the Aurora, Colorado Batman shootings in 2012.
Max says, “Much like a wildflower, she is the strongest and bravest person I know with unmatched, unintentional beauty and fragility both inside and out. Choosing to grow and persevere even in the harshest of seasons and circumstances Bonnie Kate shines brightly through the darkness and chooses to accept joy every step of the long, painful and seemingly endless way.”
It is a beautiful story of how love wins out.
This is a beautiful story. Love knows no limits and true friendships last a lifetime.
