life. nature. you. make the connection.

A two minute video is weaving its way around the world in a digital murmuration via the collective fingertips of the web—as all magical and breathtaking journeys do.

I stumbled across this video a few weeks ago and the awesomeness of it keeps creeping back into my mind when I least expect it.

Two girls in a canoe—Sophie Windsor Clive and Liberty Smith—on the river Shannon, become a captive audience to a nail-biting, jaw-dropping performance of the reality of life around them.  This murmuration of Starlings doesn’t care about their mortgage payments, piles of dirty laundry back home, homework assignments, or the time-waste of selfish gossip that floats between even the best of us.  Nor have they been taught the ideals of self-deprecation.  They just are what they are—beautiful life.

I wonder how I would react if I were one of the girls sitting in that canoe, witness to the basic truth of nature.  I keep coming back to the same conclusion.

Cry.  Fall out of the Canoe.  Float away.
