What an astonishing video this is!
Its uncomplicated, emotive — and true! — message, which brings a lump to the throat and a tear to the eye: society oppresses the spark of creativity; for we exist submissive to that which we are inculcated to regard as our “responsibilities;” those things which are wonted of us: work, school, religion, norms, mores, etc.
We gaze not forward; however, back, and regard what we are instructed to honour with a disproportionate deference.
“The book, the college, the school of art, the institution of any kind, stop with some past utterance of genius.”
“…if the man create not…cinders and smoke there may be; but, not yet flame.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson, The American Scholar
“It seemed strange that the people should come to church. It seemed as if their houses were very unentertaining, that they should prefer this thoughtless clamor. It shows that there is a commanding attraction in the moral sentiment that can lend a faint tint of light to dulness and ignorance, coming in its name and place.”
— Ralph Waldo Emerson, Divinity School Address
And here, this ingeniously compelling video; I admonished Gethyn if he does not weep tears of sadness then joy, he is not human.
Open yourself. Receive inspiration. Create.
