This is an NPR story from earlier this summer. If you click through, you’ll be treated to a wonderful talk by Nancy Etcoff on TED radio hour. Nancy is the instructor for “The Science of Happiness” at Harvard Medical School. She says, “Beauty draws us in. We can’t stop looking or listening or touching. It takes us outside ourselves and it motivates us. It’s essential to life and to happiness.”
I couldn’t agree more.
