A Little Music for your Monday

You know those people who have more talent in their pinky fingers than the rest of us will ever display in a lifetime? Andrew Bird is one of them.

TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) has just released video of Bird, a virtual one-man orchestra, performing at a TED conference in Los Angeles last February.

A creative genius on the violin, Andrew Bird composes unique music that is, at times, both beautiful and heartbreaking. But his whistling alone makes this video worth watching.

Bird’s call for “reckless curiosity” has me thinking… what would happen if I pursued life with reckless curiosity? Not just the big things in life, but all the minor decisions I make every day. At the very least, I’d spend more time listening to people like Andrew Bird.

If you’re not already familiar with TED, do yourself the favor of perusing the site. It could be your first step toward a more recklessly curious existence.
