Welcome to the First Edition of the CelebraZine (Celebration eZine) blog carnival.

Our focus dictates what we see, which reinforces our focus, further confining the possibility of what we will see. Initially, twice a month we will put together of collection of blogs containing text, image, video, and audio from talented people empowering others and Celebrating What's Right in the World!

May you be blessed by these offerings reminding us of the beauty, wonder, and sacredness in the world around us and within us.
This first edition heavily leans toward the written celebration. I have included some of my recent favorites from across the web.

Let's start the celebration of yourself!


We will start off our premiere edition with Dewitt Jones’ "Celebrate What’s Right in the World” ( ) video. For those of you who do not already know, this carnival was inspired by the sublime genius of the message in this 22 minute video, provided for your viewing in conjunction with Dewitt and Starthrower.

What a great idea, celebrating what's right in the world! So much, and yet we get bogged down sometimes by all the "bad" news. This is just an awesome way to spread some joy!

Thank you, Lanceman. We all need a dose of the rewakening our awareness of the beauty, the wonder. Many people are doing great work in this focus, so I wanted to collect and honor it.
