Where the Hell is Matt?

A while ago I posted  a lovely video clip of Matthew Harding.
If you haven't seen it, I think you should.  

Almost by accident, Matt found that he could make people realise what is really important in life.  

It started out simply.  Matt, software designer, had a crazy dance that he did.  And once, on a holiday in Vietnam, his traveling companion suggested  he do his dance for the videotape.  He danced in a few more places, edited them all together when he returned home and emailed it to friends.  The movie went 'viral' and suddenly Matt was famous in the internet community.

Another video clip was made that shows Matt dancing with groups of people all over the world.  The obvious pleasure and joy shown in these clips raises the spirits and makes viewers smile.  It's almost impossible not to feel happy and uplifted by the clip.  

Here is some more information about this remarkable man, and also a video of a lecture he gave at a college.  I wish he would come to my daughter's school!

And here, recommended by him, is a short video to press home the message.   

Enjoy your life.


  1. I love the vid! Soooo true! Sing and dance, people, while the music of life is playing!

    Thanks for that. :)

  2. Amen to that! It's always been my motto. Thank you for the reminder! Life is short. Life it to the fullest.
