My mind is a vortex of visual and audio, tidy chaos. Alas, 'tis a wonderful thing to have an outlet for my overly creative mind. Thank You!
Stormy Hill Poem
I climbed up this rainy hill to put my shaky hand upon this tree.
I had felt loss of life and hoped that it would transfer a feeling of life through me.
I didn't quite make it. I was too drained. It was too far...
... but when my soul was ready to look up, I saw my first shooting star.
This song inspired me to see the world in a different way today. It's beautiful! Red Light... stop and ponder... Green light... keep on going.
The sky is incredible tonight. It's a brilliant full moon and the clouds compliment it in a Tim Burton type of way. We took other shots of tonights sky as well but This one is amazing because hearts just seem to show up naturally... When we're not expecting it.
I often look up towards the sky.
Here's a list of seven reasons why...
One. The clouds... sometimes I spot images in them as if they have magically morphed into something for my own personal viewing. I'll say "Look, see that one?... It's a" (whatever) . Some are humorous, some are lame, some are ominous, some morph again rapidly, some stay the same.
Two. Captivating sunsets... Making my loved one's embrace feel warmer than usual while I rest my eyes upon it. Sometimes soaking it in alone... reflecting upon myself in comparison to the big world that I am a part of.
Three. Feeling a raindrop on my cheek... I instinctively look up, as if to try and find out exactly where it came from and contemplate if I should go inside or not... seems rather silly... happens every time.
Four. Big cities and city skylines... Feeling so tiny... craning my neck to see the top of the buildings... I'm amused that they're called skyscrapers. I like the fact that wherever that term originated from, the sky was thought of fondly. It seems that the buildings closest to the sky are the ones considered most impressive.
Five. Fireworks... The unmistakable sound of a firework being ignited automatically sends eyes soaring upward. The Boom, light, color and sometimes shapes and fizzling sound create a smile on any face... a wide eyed expression, on the faces of young and old.
Six. The stars... Constellations... pointing them out and trying to remember their shapes and names. Sometimes just looking at them for their individuality... sometimes collectively... wishing that there were less artificial lights so that they were easier to gaze upon without squinting. Shooting stars are amazing. I've seen a couple but I've been so surprised and excited that I've forgotten to make a wish. I wonder how many others have seen shooting stars and have had the time before it disappears to actually make a wish while it's soaring across the night's sky.
Seven. Heaven? Sometimes I look up and imagine who is looking down.
This is a REmix of the other video that I did. This one is more representitive to me of HITRECord. The other one was more personal. Thank You again, Metaphorest for the Beautiful, perfect song and for all of the inspiring talent on this site. It means so much to have HITRECord!
On a side note... Methaphorests' lyrics which say "I'm a cog in the wheel of a GIANT family" inspired me to use the footage of the audience at the SF HITRECord show (some of the GIANT HITRECord family)!!!
