Imagination was given to man to compensate him for what he is not, and a sense of humor was provided to console him for what he is. - Oscar Wilde
Animation, Art, and Other Shiny Things
For this Valentine’s Day I offer up a wonderful little short film from the National Film Board of Canada about the awkwardness of a crush. It is also a timely reminder that crushes and romance happen at any age.
I love the animations that the NFB looses into the wild, and I love my own Valentine, Mrs Crow, who’s shared my nest for nigh on three decades now. And I am here to tell ya, indeed, romance is not only for the young.
This sweet little film looks past the lust and ardor that is supposed to be love and into a little world of true devotion.
Last April Aunt Bee and I celebrated our 20th anniversary and I hope that when we get to whatever place these two folks are at that there will be this much romance in our lives.
