A Scottish Woman Provides A Lesson For All

If you want to be inspired, and have the time to watch a fascinating seven-minute video, watch this video on YouTube [3].

The video is of a Scottish woman who has never been married (claims to never have been kissed) and lives with her cat “Pebbles” in a small village. She has become an overnight sensation on both sides of the Atlantic.

The video is of her audition with “Britain's Got Talent,” [4] a British TV show that is similar to “American Idol” [5] in the U.S. The video has been viewed more than 13 million times and Boyle [6] has been featured on morning news shows all across the U.S., as well.

I've probably watched this video [3] five times now and it gets better each time. I don't want to ruin the surprise of the video. However, it illustrates one of those moments that remind us not to judge a book by its cover and that talent and beauty sometimes emerge from the strangest places. It is worth the seven minutes it takes to watch the clip.
