I love this little video. Despite the fact that it makes me a little teary eyed. The images feature my cousin and me enjoying the splish-splashiness of summer, circa 1977. In my humble opinion we were truly adorable. But, what I really like about the video is that in a nostalgic way it reminds me of how “special” I am (as is everyone else in the world). Sometimes, life can beat us up in so many ways that we can forget that we are just as precious, beautiful, and whole in our adult lives as when we were children. Regardless of how unpretty life can be at times, we are still something to behold!
This was one of my first attempts at creating a video on my computer so I just selected these images as a test subject, and before I knew it the project took on a meaning of its own. Not too shabby if I must say so myself. The song is Pretty Wings by Maxwell. Great CD if you don’t have it by now.
Thanks for looking!
