the last flowers of the season are getting blown over
Today I could not summon any enthusiasm for anything. I was standing around in the garden, watching this bumblebee struggle against the wind, wavering and getting knocked around by the wind, trying to attach himself to a blossom on the last of the cosmos in my garden. I decided to get my camera because I wanted footage of him. The wind was blowing really hard. The sun would come out for a minute and then go back behind a cloud. It was really gusty. I took about ten minutes of footage of flowers blowing around. I started to feel better. My roommate came home and I was standing in the garden, where the tomatoes and the squashes had been, just staring at the last cosmos. She said I needed some sad French music. I went onto iTunes and bought some. I knew exactly what I wanted. It took about fifty seconds to purchase the music and about three hours to make this video. I am not as sad as I was when I started. Oil changes is needs some new life. I hope you like this movie. I tried very hard to resist the temptation to "perfectly" match the footage to the music, to choreograph it "perfectly." I tried to trust the footage as much as possible. There's one cut that's already really bothering me. Such is life.
