a little calmer today, at least calm enough to tell you it had been probably close to 30 years since i had last seen this; can you say "literally gut-wrenching silent sobbing"? idk, maybe it's just me, but there is a certain terrible (as in dumbstruck)beauty to this, just blows me away.

dgoods,

I'[m glad you are feeling better today

I watched the video and have to admit that I felt like crying - but the tears were internal

I do hope that you can talk the feelings out with someone though - I know it hurts to hold it in

I've never seen this before. At first it appeared that the flower/plant was crying, then I got another perspective, like it was picking up the early morning dew which would give it life. When at the end, the camera pans across, and you realise it is but one flower in the midst of many concrete monstrosities that all look the same. Then you can compare it to us - we can lap up the water of life, or we can be like the blandness around us. We can be the colour in life! And why not?

Best wishes ...Rik

I had never seen this one. It was such a beautiful sketch and the ending really grabbed me. Wasn't expecting that at all. Thanks for posting this.

Much love,
Larry
