    Ouch, the loveliness.


    I could watch this a million times. I would like to live in a snowglobe (although apparently it is treacherous).

    This story makes me think of my uncle’s struggle with cancer… As soon as i saw the crow I knew that’d be it for him…. very touching.

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
