The World Spins Madly On

So a whiiiiile ago this song that I just love popped up on my Pandora (which I also just love): "The World Spins Madly On" by The Weepies. Such a beautiful, beautiful song. This video that Ryan Woodward (BYU Animation made is also beautiful! (He's a BYU Animation professor). If only I could dance like a sketched doubt that would be a sight to see. Ha. We had a conversation about pencil vs. pen in my cinema class group oral final (cool idea, huh? Don't worry we had to write too!). It was all figurative, of course. I'm glad that we get to write our lives in pencil because you never know when you might need to erase, go back, and change a couple of things. Not that writing with a pen stops me from crossing out and adding things all over the place (sure my teachers love that!). Anyway, I was thinking that maybe progression is like a sketch...there'll always be something you can add to it, but people are going to love it (assuming you're a good sketch artist!) at several stages along the way. Adding shading and dimension to the sketch gives it depth that makes it interesting and beautiful, but who says it wasn't beautiful to begin with? I think we all become more beautiful with time as we grow, learn from occasional mistakes, mature, and try to put all the pieces together. Is that why elderly people are so darn cute? Maybe so. I'd like to be one of the cute ones someday, so I should start practicing!
