There are millions of videos on the Internet. Among the masses, hundreds of thousands of them do not need to be on there. Yes, your baby is cute but the world does not need a twenty minute video on him attempting say the word “bubble.” Then again, videos are just like the written word that is also very prevalent, but also very much unnecessary more often than not. After a person experiences an absolute masterpiece like East of Eden, a book such as Twilight leaves a bad taste on the literary palate. But hey, it makes money so the world deems it as a “good” book. Again, a stunning novel like The Great Gatsby hardly made a dime for its author in his lifetime, and he died believing it a failure. Ugh, I digress.
The video that I have attached to this post breathed life into my soul, the very first and second and third and fourth time I watched it. The series following this video are nothing short of pure and beautiful in word and cinematography. There really is nothing I can add to contribute to the magnificence of John Koenig’s work. I will practice what I preach and limit my words to allow you to completely soak up the visual and spoken energy . . . “for lack of a better world.”
