I’m a dumbass who can’t spell the word “fuel.” But enough of a smartass to realize it and attempt to correct it a la the magic of Sharpie. And just plain an ass for blogging about it. But here’s my final stop-motion piece. I’ve thought a lot this year about hope–How there’s that Emily Dickinson poem that says it’s “the thing with feathers that perches in the soul,” but then Nietzche famously described it as being the thing that prolongs the agonies of man. I honestly can’t disagree with either. While hope can be a beautiful thing, it can also keep a person stuck in a rut and when these desires or illusions become so great and hope falls apart, it can really hurt. So that was the concept I decided to bring into this video. On of my mom’s friends recently said that sometimes when you stop hoping for something, you aren’t necessarily giving up, but rather, opening your mind to possibility, a sentiment that sums up what I was trying to convey with this video perfectly.
