I can't quite believe it myself because I've never worked harder on anything in my life.</p><p>So, for any of you who are frustrated/disappointed that you can't access the film, please know that this was not an easy decision to make, but I believe it was the right one. I owe it to everyone involved in this project and to the diaphanous entity that is <em>The Beckoning of Lovely</em> itself to stay with this just a bit longer -&nbsp; and to bring it to you in its most perfect, shiny form.</p><p>This is not the way I thought it would all shake down post 11/11/11, but so be it. Such is the life of a person who makes stuff.&nbsp;</p><p>In the meantime, in the spirit of I-don't-know-whether-to-laugh-or-to-cry, I thought I'd share this fantastic little video.&nbsp;<br> &nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/D7_0SOTQLIQ" width="420" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe><br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Century Gothic',sans-serif; line-height: normal; text-align: justify;"> &nbsp;</p><p>peace sign, red heart, yellow umbrella,<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Century Gothic',sans-serif; line-height: normal; text-align: justify;"> amy<br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Century Gothic',sans-serif; line-height: normal; text-align: justify;"> <br style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Century Gothic',sans-serif; line-height: normal; text-align: justify;"> p.s.

More on the event in a moment.</p><p>I'd like to begin by sharing <strong>The Beckoning of Lovely feature-length film</strong> in its entirety. &nbsp;As you know, it was officially released on 11/11/11. &nbsp;As you may not know, it's 65 minutes long and is comprised of five parts or "movements." &nbsp;</p><p><em>One quick aside: &nbsp;due to some unforeseen technical issues, we had to completely re-upload the film this morning. &nbsp;So if you happened to already view the film, and you posted comments, responded to the interactive prompts in the film, etc, I hope you will take a moment to re-post them. &nbsp;I've included the original video links at the bottom of this post, so you can just copy and paste your comments, should you so desire.</em></p><p><strong>I hope you enjoy the show...</strong><br> &nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/xSjSt92n8l0" width="560" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qJar21AWxE8" width="560" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/qSG-k9D2kGo" width="560" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/miD_fYTKlys" width="560" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/j1Aez366tGU" width="560" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>And now, about the 11/11/11 We Are All One gathering at the Bean! &nbsp;</strong></p><p>I know that acoustics were less than ideal; try as we might, we have not been able to perfect this element. &nbsp;We had announced at the beginning of the event that because of anticipated acoustical issues,<strong> we actually went ahead and posted the entire script online so you could follow along. &nbsp;Ironically, not even THIS message was heard by all!&nbsp; Sigh.</strong> So, a day late and dollar short:</p><p>*&nbsp;<a href="http://whoisamy.com/111111/">Here is the script of everything that was said/done so you can at least connect the dots</a>! &nbsp;*&nbsp;</p><p>When you read this, you'll see that a couple Mission Amy KR readers played a significant role in the day. Thank you again to Trinity Muller of Minneapolis for your wonderful Red Scarf Project idea and kicking it off, or rather, casting off, right there at the Bean. And thank you again to Rachael Crowe of Ann Arbor for sharing your incredibly moving and personal story about what the words "Make The Most of Your Time Here" mean to you.

&nbsp;</em>So we filled up a neighborhood tree with dollar bills, and let the camera roll.<em> &nbsp;</em>That video is shared again at the end of this post.</p><p>The video ended up going viral...and so many astute observations and hypotheticals came of it:</p><p><em>- What if we had filled the tree with $10 bills instead of singles? &nbsp;</em></p><p><em>- What if the tree was in a low income neighborhood?</em></p><p><em>- What if there was a sign encouraging people to help themselves to the money? &nbsp;</em></p><p>There are literally hundreds of comments along these lines on YouTube; I think the comment thread alone makes for an interesting anthropological discussion in the classroom or at the dinner table.</p><p>And just recently, one young man by the name of&nbsp;Alex Vasquez-Inovskis decided to conduct his own version of the experiment. &nbsp;Alex is a student of an amazing teacher named Erika Deiters at Moraine Valley College; she gave her students the assignment of creating something new inspired by one of our missions. &nbsp;<br> <br> I think he created something pretty special: &nbsp;&nbsp;<br> &nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/zvtFGoEOOCo" width="500" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p><p><br> So this week's mission:</p><p>Let's use Alex's video as a springboard-- what does it inspire YOU to give away? &nbsp;</p><p>I invite you to actually conduct/film the experience, <strong>or to simply share your ideas in the comment section. &nbsp;</strong></p><p><strong>And then I just might take one of your suggestions and bring it to life for a future Mission Amy KR mission.</strong> &nbsp;I love the idea of this being a sort of inspiration version of Russian Dolls...one idea inside/leading to another.</p><p>Thank you again to Alex, and to Ms. Erika Deiters...</p><p>yours,</p><p>amy &nbsp; <a href="http://itsalmo.st/#thebeckoningoflovely">p.s. 11 days until The Beckoning of Lovely 11/11/11 !</a></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/ZsN8FUV9nS4" width="500" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe><br> <br> And I doubt you missed this (because it has 70 millions views) but just in case, here is the classic and beautiful "Free Hugs" video created by Juan Mann in 2006.<br> &nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/vr3x_RRJdd4" width="500" frameborder="0" height="315"></iframe></p></p> Sun, 30 Oct 2011 17:14:00 -0500 http://www.wbez.org/blog/mission-amy-kr/2011-10-30/mission-97-variations-money-tree-93612 Thursday Thingy: A genius interpretation of childhood http://www.wbez.org/blog/mission-amy-kr/2011-10-27/thursday-thingy-genius-interpretation-childhood-93529 <p><p><br> And now, from the mind and kitchen of the legendary chef Grant Achatz...<br> &nbsp;</p><p><iframe allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/9pmoE9W2htM" width="560"></iframe>/a&gt;</p><p>Unreal, right?</p><p>May that magical feeling linger until we meet again; see you all Monday.</p><p>amy &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;</p><p>p.s. &nbsp;Please know I have not forgotten about the <strong>beauty contest</strong> or the <strong>"audio snapshots" video</strong> (your messages were beautiful, btw)...
