My favorite – honest and beautiful

I can get sentimental over the holidays (I suppose it’s better than bitter and/or depressed).  I have an affinity to certain timeless and transcendent lessons in childhood stories, The Grinch, Charlie Brown, Pee Wee’s Christmas  (HAH!) . . . but the video below is a clip of my all time favorite.  No speaking (but for a bit of music and song) – there is no need for words.  Beautiful renderings in pastels and what I feel is the most HONEST lesson about life – joy, hope, imagination, clinging, sorrow and Impermanence.

    Oh yes, this is absolutely awesome, one of the traditions of Xmas Eve to watch it from telly. Still, as an adult, I’ll watch it every Christmas when it comes from tv. Bueno!

    Thank you for sharing.

    With palms together,
