Hey it’s Brent Carey. My day starts with a great workout, wild Muni bus ride to work, then it’s time to open the mic on KOIT 3-7pm. I love living in the city, hope to run into you soon at a Bay Area event!
Taylor Swift cares about her fans and does a great job of giving back. There have been many stories of how she visits sick fans and stops by hospitals. During one her recent visits, a leukemia patient asked her to join in a version of Adele's "Someone Like You." Even though she didn't know the song by heart, she joined in.
The fan who uploaded the video wrote: I recently underwent a bone marrow transplant due to leukemia. Taylor Swift stopped by the hospital for a surprise visit and dropped by my room to say hi! When she noticed the keyboard in my room, she asked me to play a song for her. I decided to play a song I had recently started working on which was "Someone Like You," by Adele. She said she would sing what she knew, and I said that I would play as much as I knew. This was the most amazing moment in my life being able to accompany Taylor Swift. She is super nice and cordial and probably made everyone's day here at the hospital. It was so great of her to come out specially to visit all of us here at the hospital. And in case you are wondering, I did get a hug from her, unfortunately it wasn't caught on video!
Poor little guy. He really wants to go inside and see everyone but he thinks the door is closed. He even barks a little because he wants in so bad. It's not until the owner opens the invisible door that he goes inside.
Ready for a trip back 46 years to the beginning of BART? This promotional video goes back to the construction of the system in 1968 and features some great old footage. Interesting to see the construction and the original vision "to provide safe, fast, economical and comfortable mass transit, thereby eliminating traffic congestion and preserving the beauty and character of the area."
The gratitude challenge has been going around on Facebook recently. It's great seeing what people are grateful for in their lives. Gratitude has a profound ability to transform your life and the way you see the world.
I found this video from a past TEDx in San Francisco featuring the talented Louie Schwartzberg. Louie's video is called "Happiness Revealed," and it's beautiful. I hope you enjoy it.
"You think this is just another day in your life. It's not just another day, it's the one day that is given to you TODAY. It's given to you, it's a gift. It's the only gift that you have right now, and the only appropriate response is gratefulness."
