I missed you crazy kids.
Got back from Vegas last night, had to go there on business yet again. No, Im not hiding a girlfriend, boyfriend, or a special bank account that I fund hookers from. Thanks for your confidence.
So, I saw an amazing thing yesterday I wanted to share with you. I have such a deep admiration for the arts, whether in the form of music, canvas, or otherwise, and the motivational speaker that my company brought in was a truly incredible guy.
He spoke of being a father, an artist, innovation and more, and he really proved to be a man that you found yourself wanting to emulate.
And then, he painted. Three canvases on the stage, and as he began to paint on the first, U2's Beautiful Day came up. He painted furiously and quickly, putting paint on the canvas in a technique I had never seen live, until finally the image simply jumped into your consciousness. And we sat there quietly until it did, and then as if he had reached into our heads simultaneously, we all erupted into cheering and applause as we realized what he had created, all in just the duration of that one song...a fantastic image of Bono himself.
Now, Im sorry I didnt catch the creation of the Bono painting on video, as it really was the moment of revelation as to what he was doing. But watch the other two videos I got of the other two paintings, especially the second. You will hear me realize what the painting is of on the audio...I caught on before anyone else around me, so see if you get it before I did.
In the spirit of Jen's A Thousand Words Thursday, his talent and inspirational talk really left me in awe. Wish you could have been there with me...
