Feeling down and sorry for yourself?

Post by Ken » Sun December 4th, 2011, 10:04 am

I've had a pretty rough time of it over the last few months, feeling pretty down and sorry for myself. This morning I found this short, but utterly moving and compelling video, which has helped me to take a different view on my life - the positive things that make life so good and to see that I am really a very lucky guy! I urge you to watch it. Don't worry about the name 'viralvideochart' It's fine!

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Thanks, Ken! That cheered me up even though I wasn't down.

Thanks Ken. I was expecting another one of your *surprises*, but what an inspiration.

Oh, HAD to catch me when I'm all susceptible and gooey this one.
