An Eye-Popping Talk on Gratefulness

American cinematographer Louis Schwartzberg, a pioneer in high-end time-lapse imagery, gave this inspiring talk on the subject of gratitude at TEDx San Francisco earlier this year:

Did you know that 80% of the information we receive comes through our eyes? […] and aren’t we grateful for our brains that can take this electrical impulse that comes from light energy to create images in order for us to explore our world?

It’s a great reminder of how precious of a gift life is, and how much beauty is present all around us. We just need to open our eyes.
