Birthday Week 2013 – Take 2

This is wonderful. Two days ago, students from the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance created a “flashwaltz” in the lobby of the new inpatient tower on Hadassah Hospital’s Ein Karem campus. This is the campus where the Sharett Institute of Oncology is located, where I receive treatment. I haven’t seen the new Davidson Tower yet, and am not especially anxious to sample its many amenities for inpatients!

With thanks to @ElaineSchattner, who tweeted the link yesterday, please enjoy Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers.

Joy!

I love flash mobs, and this is one of the best I’ve ever seen. We I need something to lift me up this week, so here is “Som Sabadell” (We are Sabadell). A friend posted it on Facebook, and it is an instant mood elevator.

Like all the best flash mobs, it starts slow and builds and gets better and better and better and better. Watch the faces, watch the children and the babies. Let yourself be lifted up and become an Ode to Joy!

This is what BancSabadell wrote when uploading it to YouTube:

On the 130th anniversary of the founding of Banco Sabadell we wanted to pay homage to our city by means of the campaign “Som Sabadell” (We are Sabadell) . This is the flashmob that we arranged as a final culmination with the participation of 100 people from the Vallès Symphony Orchestra, the Lieder, Amics de l’Òpera and Coral Belles Arts choirs.
