Yes to This

National Geographic lifted a house with weather balloons. That was someone’s job, y’all. (via Say Yes to Hoboken).

For more touching Internet, clear your mind for ten minutes and watch Ten Things I Have Learned About the Sea. (via BB-Blog)

    My son just went wild when he saw this. Thanks for posting it!

    Maggie, I just loved the video. We are a sailing family so this really struck a cord with me. It just goes to show that if you’re open to it, there’s beauty everywhere. Wouldn’t you just love to have that job at Nat’l. Geo?

    This is so whimsical… I LOVE IT! The world needs more UP-referential happiness.

  • Jen Says:

    This is exactly what I needed on a tough morning to lift my spirits. To know that in the face of the words “not possible” the answer “yes it is” exists. What a beautiful illustration of that exact notion.

    That makes me feel so much better about UP. I loved that movie but then my mean husband had to bring reality crashing back down and point out how it was impossible. Totally showed him and said “Nanny nanny boo boo”

    Now that looks like MUCH more fun than the way I moved our house.

    By the way, I have a friend who works at National Geographic and, though he’d never complain — that’s his nature — it sounds like a job is a job, at any level! The way I see it, the grass always appears greener somewhere else; Make the best of whatever you have!!
