Nice to see you getting the creative juices flowing again. Enjoyed this vid Syd. The animation was brilliant and the song moving. It obviously means a lot to you.

This reminds me, I need to vacuum today.   Thanks.

Oh, yeah and good to see you at it again... video making, not vacuuming, I mean.  Although if you want to vacuum, and that is what you meant in this video... feel free to.

Holy Cannolis, Syd. WOW, just wow.

This is like being given the key to peek into someone's soul. your voice coupled with a perfect selection of animated footage, just knocked me back on this Sunday morning. I hope this did something cathartic for you, as it most certainly is effective upon me as the viewer.  just beautiful

@CHIG - wow, you beat me to it by like SECONDS...and you sure have a way of creating a diversion when the subject is quite serious...I like this about you.

@TG.  I left the serious comment on VH..... Okay, you got me... it wasn't serious at all.   Damn.

I was tearing up as I watched because 1. You're voice is so achingly beautiful and 2. this is the kind of art that must touch anyone with a soul and 3. There's an element of this that is also in the video I've been working on for a year and a half and 4. Zombie-Chig was gnawing into my ankle while I was trying to watch.


Oh , Syd. So, so beautiful.

Thank you for being.

Hey you guys, thanks!

Sara- thanks for seein' into it that far.  Yes, catharsis- the best damn thing since peanut butter and chocolate (and I like that about Chig, too)

Space, the original animation by Ryan Woodward is definitely worth a look-see (I changed it for my video) but the music choice, imho, distracts from what I see is the story of the piece.

Much appreciated, all.

I expected something fabulous and I wasn't disappointed.

Oh wow, Blanchie...

Here's the funny thing- about how we inspire each other.  I finished this only after I saw a blog by Flophouse who wrote about the exact thing I was struggling with that compelled me to begin working on this piece a while ago.     I hesitate to talk about it cuz it takes away from what someone else might get from it.  

I look forward to seeing your piece after it's allowed you to complete it.  Art definitely has a tendency to give permission for moving forward, eh?  

And thanks for your loverly words, too.
