Ideas, Young Life

(days 29 & 30)

Loooong overdue…

(day 29) – The newest OK GO music video.  For me this video exactly captures creativity and thinking differently.

(day 30) – The Opening Stanza from T.S. Elliot’s The Rock:

“The Eagle soars in the summit of Heaven,
The Hunter with his dogs pursues his circuit.

O perpetual revolution of configured stars,
O perpetual recurrence of determined seasons,
O world of spring and autumn, birth and dying

The endless cycle of idea and action,
Endless invention, endless experiment,
Brings knowledge of motion, but not of stillness;
Knowledge of speech, but not of silence;
Knowledge of words, and ignorance of the Word.
All our knowledge brings us nearer to our ignorance,
All our ignorance brings us nearer to death,
But nearness to death no nearer to GOD.
Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?
The cycles of Heaven in twenty centuries
Bring us farther from GOD and nearer to the Dust.”

What are your thoughts on the 30 days of ideas?  What stood out?  Have you felt inspired in any way?  Have your eyes been opened to anything new or different?  What ideas do you have to share?
