Powerful Moments Of Wonder Are A Reminder Of Life’s Beauty
In celebration of Arianna Huffington’s latest book, “Thrive,” HuffPost Live is examining the power of the four pillars of the Third Metric — well-being, wisdom, wonder and giving.

HuffPost staffers previously joined together to share their most meaningful gestures of giving and favorite words of wisdom, and on March 27 the topic was wonder. Whether it’s balancing on a surfboard for the first time, watching the birth of your child or seeing a loved one fight his way back from the brink of death, wondrous moments provide a powerful sense of the beauty of life that surrounds us all.

Check out our favorite moving moments of wonder in the video above, and see the full HuffPost Live conversation below.

Arianna Huffington’s Sister Agapi Stassinopoulos Discusses Their Mother’s Death
Arianna Huffington stopped by HuffPost Live on Tuesday to tell the emotional story of how she and her sister reacted when their mother collapsed her in Los Angeles home. The siblings resisted the urge to call an ambulance and instead let their mother die in the manner she wanted. Today Huffington’s sister Agapi Stassinopoulos joined the conversation and shared how she, too, found wonder in the passing of their mother.

“My mother had that sense that she knew her end had come, and she wasn’t afraid,” Stassinopoulos recounted to HuffPost Live’s Caroline Modarressy Tehrani. “And that fearlessness is extraordinary. And she kind of took charge even of her own passing and knew she wanted to die at home. It was her moment.”

The loss of her mother was certainly tough, but Stassinopoulos said the way it happened gave the family tranquility in a time of pain.

“I think it was a moment where time stopped,” she said. “There was a sanctity, a sacredness that took place. At that moment, it wasn’t sad. … At that moment, It was calm.”

Watch the rest of Agapi Stassinopoulos’ conversation with HuffPost Live below.

German Photographer Gets Up Close And Personal To Capture Dogs’ Expressions

Vogelsang puts her pups in front of a dark garden shed and lies on the ground to get as close as she can with her camera to capture each dog’s natural expressions — usually focusing on their snout, Today reported.

The photographer is working on turning the photo series into a book and has started to take photos of other animals — including horses!

“I love photography with every beat of my heart,” Vogelsang wrote on her website. “It is my ambition to show my verve and my love through my photos thus creating truly individual and impressive pictures, that elate you the same as me when I am on the set.”
