music drifts in
from the floating world

Sadly, my computer only gives me snippets of the music, like links on a chain that are not quite soldered together...

oh dear jinksy - perhaps it needs a few more cranks on the handle to give it a little more get up and go?!!! it works fine on my machine . . .wish i could help you out there! steven

Elisabeth said...

This is lovely, Steven. Thanks. Joyful and uplifting - a good way to 'stay in my memory'.

Stopped by looking for a Magpie but enjoyed the visit just the same.

Linda Sue said...

wonderful clever animation- Wheee! love the dragon going down the hole and flying up and out of the book- what a cool video.
when I read to my child when he was wee- he used to try to climb into the books- it became frustrating for him not to be able to "go there" literally. some of the books I had to shelve for later, mush later.

Wow, this work is so beautiful. As Linda Sue says this is an embodiment of reading to kids. They want to climb into the pages of a good illustrated book.

hello elisabeth - i follow bim every so often just to see what they're syaing and what they're doing. this is a very special piece. i am glad you enjoyed it as much as i did. steven

steven said...

hi vicki, the magpie pieces are posted on tuesday morning!! see you then. steven

steven said...

linda sue - the book thing is pure magic for me also. i have read since i was very little and it is a consuming passion for me to read books written for any age - the only criteria is they have to be really really good! i luck out most of the time with tremendous stories, brilliant illustrators and then i get to share them with my class. sweet times. steven

paul - you're so right. even when they get older they love to immerse themsleves ina highly visual text. it's something that has no parallel. steven

What a lovely video about longing, memory, books and love. It holds sadness but ends hopeful. Love the music. Thanks for showing us this.
