Whimsy, woo-woo, and wow

I don't know what instigated it, exactly, but about 15 years ago I started becoming more aware of, and developing more interest in, the stuff of which this experience is made.

Yesterday, I introduced you to Burt Harding, a man I only came to know was on the planet one day before you did. He clearly has taken woo-woo way past what I can portray, and it is great fun to listen to him speak.

A week ago, I did a short bit on Bernie DeKoven, easily the most-engaging man I have met (well, we haven't met, but we have spoken on the phone) who devotes his life to the serious business of fun.

So, we have Bernie as Whimsy, Burt as Woo-woo, and today I'm bringing to the mix the Wow of Zach Anner.

Zach is a young man in Austin, Texas who auditioned when Oprah Winfrey invited everyone to try out to become a new talk show host on her new network which debuts next year.

Rather than ramble, I'll let Zach take it from here.
That, my friends, is WOW.

I can't wait to see Zach's new show. In the meantime, he has posted some other videos on Youtube. You can catch his channel here.

What ties these three gentlemen together is the delightfully diverse elements of life they illustrate. What attracts me to them is their joy and passion for what they are doing. Burt has a gentle smile on his face about 90% of the time. Bernie has the most infectious laugh I have heard lately, and Zach...he is just a force of CP sexiness!

Remember, folks: there is no Atlantis too underwater or too fictional.

I love this as well, Rick. I went to his YouTube site and then followed the link to vote for his Oprah show and saw that he had over 3 million votes, so it might be a possibility. I'd be a faithful viewer! xo, O

Rick, this was awesome! Zach is living proof that what others label as limitations are chances for us to draw new boundary lines. He is incredible!

O -- He will win, no doubt! His vote count is only exceeded by his likability.

Thanks for stopping by and marveling at Zach. He is a force of nature, that's for sure!
