Best day

Remember when people used to post videos they liked on their blog? Now we just tweet or post them to Facebook which is fine I suppose.

This video is one I'm sure many of seen as it is destined to go viral if it already hasn't. I first saw it on twitter and since have watched it at least 7 times showing it to all members of my family who each watch with smiles and joy as they watch a little boy be a little boy who's enamored with play and science and creating an experience for others to enjoy.  I don't want you to miss it.

So many lessons to be learned, so much to appreciate. The lost art of boredom, trial and error, giving to others and let's not forget the filmmaker here who tells a wonderful story and then lavishes a beautiful gift for the boy by bringing him customers and attention which culminates with, 

After the flashmob, at the end of the day as Caine and his dad drove home, Caine turned to his dad and said, “Dad, this was the best day of my whole life.”

​Yes, the best day. Seems to me we should be able to create more "best days" for the people in our lives.
