On light (with few words)

Image of lit Chinese lanterns in the old town, Macau.Dear Gentle Reader,

Your humble scribe is in a wee bit of discomfort.

So, no typing this morning.

In fact, I am about to, carefully, trundle off to see someone.

So, instead of the written word, I offer you two visual riffs revolving around light.

The first is a lovely, dark, stop-motion (dystopian? or realistic?) view of the world from 1996 by Bill Tomlinson.

This second piece is an effervescent bit of light relief called Scintillation. Scintillation is a beautiful short film by Xavier Chassaing.

SCINTILLATION from Xavier Chassaing on Vimeo.

And with that I really have to go.

Phooey, I don't like hearing that you are feeling uncomfortable. I hope that whomever you are going to see can give you some relief.

Is it scribe-ies? Oh wait, that's scabies. never mind. ;-)

I loved "Scintillation"! I wasn't in the mood for anything dystopian, so I just watched the one.

Please feel better.

Dear Fireblossom, Teresa, and Cloudia,

Thank for for your thoughts. This will be an amusing week in a month's time. Or more.
