short films of inspirational people

No woodworking or crafts in this post just some inspirational people living lives to the full, believing in what they do and going their own way. Maybe taking the road less travelled.

First up Lloyd Kahn, I first came across his inspirational book “Shelter” 20 or more years ago. What a treat to find him on the internet, he took up skateboarding at 65, that’s the kind of guy he is. “You should have some fun every day”

And Lloyd has a fantastic eclectic blog

Next up “if I only scrape a living at least it’s a living worth scraping” 



and this one is not for those with vertigo but shows amazing dedication, worth double clicking  to get full screen



and last one, an old one I may have posted a few years ago but worth seeing again, Danny MacAskill. A mate of mine taught him unicycle when he was still at school, his teachers told him he was wasting his time on bikes.

    If you want more like this, watch some of the talks given at Do Lectures. http://dolectures.com/I went there in 2009 and saw some incredible talks. I also met the woman I'm marrying in a couple of weeks. The guy who did that Dark Side Of The Lens video spoke there last year. Have a good weekend!George.
