Oscar Acceptance Speech
GERDA WEISSMANN KLEIN:
Kary, Sheila, Sandy, Michael, my beloved husband and my family. I have been in a place for six incredible years where winning meant a crust of bread and to live another day. Since the blessed day of my liberation I have asked the question, why am I here? I am no better. In my mind’s eye I see those years and days and those who never lived to see the magic of a boring evening at home. On their behalf I wish to thank you for honoring their memory, and you cannot do it in any better way than when you return to your homes tonight to realize that each of you who know the joy of freedom are winners. Thank you on their behalf with all my heart.

I thank you God

i thank You God for most this amazing
day:for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything
which is natural which is infinite which is yes

(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birth
day of life and of love and wings: and of the gay
great happening illimitably earth)

how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any–lifted from the no
of all nothing–human merely being
doubt unimaginable You?

(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened)

Co-creating ; an ideal work place

July 28, 2014 § Leave a comment


In a workplace, a group of individuals come together to co-create something that is going to make a difference. Co-creation allows us to learn, contribute and grow collectively as a company. An ideal work environment is like a well oiled machine. Everyone has their own part in the team. Its fun to trust! Trust my co-workers and them being able to trust me. We push each other to be better. We try to bring our best self to the table and enable the group to bring theirs.  When the group dynamic works well, everyone is more than productive. Productive, because we have fun while working. Productive, because we are creating value in what we do. Our product is worthwhile, meaningful and will be a benefit to others. We are co-operative components, coming together to co-create something larger than ourself, that will help others.

My work brings me joy.

And I am excited to go to work everyday.

Where Am I?
