Humans of New York post

I found a great post by Humans of New York with a story that warmed my heart.  I'll quote it.....

"Right after I lost vision in my eye, I was so bad at walking that I ran into a girl earing ice cream, and knocked her cone out of her hand.  She screamed, "Are you blind!?!?"  I turned to her and said, "I am blind actually.  I'm so sorry.  I'll buy you a new cone." And she said, "Oh my God! I'm so sorry! Don't worry! It's no problem at all! I'll buy another one." So we walked into the ice cream store together, and the clerk said, "I heard the whole thing.  Ice cream is free."

painting with drumsticks

I was wandering around the People's Choice Festival on Sunday when I came across an artist, Georgie Lehoop, who uses drum sticks to paint.  He has been a drummer for years and he said about 10 years ago he started painting.  He even sometimes records the rhythms that the drum sticks make on the painting.  Check out the following two videos.  They're pretty great!
