Nobelity....worth watching

We just watched the film Nobelity. I had seen it previously at the Crossings. We found a copy of it at the Armadillo Christmas Bazaar. The film is a documentary put together by Turk Pipkin. He went around the world interviewing Nobel Prize winners in all kinds of catagories to get their opinions on the 10 biggest problems facing the world and what they think can be done to address these problems. It is inciteful, beautifully shot and has a great sound track.

Anything important enough to complain about, is important enough to take action aimed at its improvement. There are many ways to take action, from making donations of time or money to meditating on a good outcome to spreading the word about the efforts of those who are affecting change. As Jody Williams says in the film, change is not hard to accompllish. You just have to get off your ass and do something.

Seventh Sister, thanks for visiting my blog! I see that Top Cat commented on your previous post -- he's a good guy.

I have never heard of this movie before. I'll have to put it on my list. Incidentally, the link to the Crossings seems to be broken.

Thanks for stopping by,dan. I think I have fixed the link now.

Dan said...

Yes, it's fixed! And I suspected that this was the Texan branch of the Omega Institute in Rhinebeck, NY. I love that place!

Top cat said...

Great positive post.
I love your attitude.
I was going to tell dan about your blog but I see he's already found it.:)

Dan, You are right, The Crossings was originally affiliated with Omega but I don't think it is any more. I have been fortunate to get to attend 2 workshops out there. I can't wait to go again.

Thanks for your kind words, tc.

That is for sure!!!! I hate it when people whine about a problem but aren't willing to work towards a solution.
