Don't let this break down into an environmental debate, that isn't why I shared this and there are other threads for that.

Enjoy!

Pretty awesome what Mother Nature is capable of.
Dance as if no one's watching, sing as if no one's listening, and live everyday as if it were your last.

Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.

That's majorly cool beans. I watched it about 4 times and I have trouble putting it into perspective - even though he does say what it is akin to.
