A funny thing happened when I saw this short, unpretentious video by film maker Joshua Priestley.
I was transported utterly into the the heartbreaking flash of beauty that is each forgotten moment, each taken for granted pebble, each anonymous bird, and each soul upon this compromised but still turning planet.
At once social commentary, environmental statement and meditation on existence, this piece is a love poem to life—all in under three minutes.
Watch and see.
