A Lecture to Remember

One of the artforms that I don’t think gets enough attention over the holiday season is drama.  I think we have the traditions of Christmas Carols, we send cheer through the designs on our holiday cards and we watch multiple versions of the Nutcracker.  But drama sort of gets left to the side.  Today, I’d like to take a non-traditional approach to highlight this wonderful art.  Today’s video post is a reprise of Randy Pausch’s Last Lecture that he gave years ago on the Oprah show.  While this doesn’t seem like a dramatic presentation, his message is so poignant and the way that he showcases it through his voice, his body and the way he interacts with his audience uses the elements of drama beautifully.  Enjoy this wonderful message – again if you’ve already heard it – and embrace the year that lies ahead.
