Wow. Crossing the great divides.
Thanks to my blogger friend Liz – and Heineken beer – for this.

“A great relationship is about two things. First, appreciating the similarities, and second, respecting the differences.”
I am not usually in the business of promoting adverts for beer, but I feel compelled to make an exception in the case of the latest offering from Heineken. Check out this short film which demonstrates starkly and powerfully how well we can get along with other people who hold views different from our own, if we just make a tiny effort to spend some time with them.

Love that Heineken advertisement! Thanks for posting this one! The painting, too, is beautiful.
Thinking I need a Heineken
Thank-you for re-blogging this excellent post by Liz. I was really so impressed by it.
Thank you for reblogging this post and introducing Liz to your readers, Cynthia! I enjoyed the videos and the lessons contained in them. The message is always relevant, but so needed now in these troubled times in which we all live.
Un travail intéressant et une façon originale de travailler la couleur et la matière 🙂 Belle soirée
That was so wonderful!
Thank you for reblogging Liz’ brilliant post, Cynthia. Lavinia is so right, spot on for the trying times in which we live ….
Good points made – I love the second animated film because not everyone really gets the difference between empathy and sympathy, and it’s a big one! If only it were so easy to sit down over a beer and be non-judgmental. But it’s a start, eh?
So true, Jeanne. And yes, it’s a start. Wishing you a good weekend, Jeanne.
