Discouraged By (And/Or With) Your Fellow Man? Hang On Just A Second...

Before you give in to the (perfectly understandable) despair, head on over to YouTube and take a quick look at this two hour and ten minute video of the legendary Pablo Casals performing Bach's legendary Unaccompanied Cello Suites.

You can listen, too, because it's wonderful. But what really captured my attention wasn't the music itself, but the fact that it has (as I type this sentence) 3,041,795 views. Yep, you read correctly: almost fifty-thousand views over THREE MILLION, which means that this brilliant performance of this spectacular music is being heard again and again and again and again. (Bless you for this amazing full-length video, bacharacter; bless you!)

But wait. It gets better. When I started this post on the 5th of October, it was at 2,996,567 views, which means that we've added over 9,000 views a day. NINE THOUSAND. 

Maybe we're not quite as doomed as I'd been thinkin.
