Be sure to expand this to full screen — it’s beautiful footage. I can say that because I didn’t shoot it myself. It’s from the free stock video site Beachfront B-Roll and is licensed under the Creative Commons (Attribution Unported license). But I did go to the trouble to save and upload a true HD version, for once. It actually didn’t take much more than an hour to upload, so maybe I’ll do that more often from now on and stop subjecting y’all to crappy low-resolution videos.
UPDATE 7/8/12: I’ve completely revised the soundtrack to include a somewhat livelier soundscape than the one included in the original video, as well as a more natural reading. Freesound.org is a marvelous resource.
(note to self)
don’t be so eager to find yourself
the deer rolls her eye in panic
at your approach
birds take flight
the rabbit’s pelt quivers
consider the possibility
that they’re right about you
those whom we trust to predict earthquakes
stop trying to dot your i’s
from a Greek temple
where no one now remembers
the name of the god
