It is the first week of classes for the spring semester. Cold. It is also the week of my first formal tenure and promotion review. A busy week. In the middle of it, my dear friend and mentor, Tim Leonard, sent me a gift via e-mail. The YouTube clip below. I am using for my course tonight and share it here as an “I’ll be right back,” while I am away from the keyboard and blogging.
Animation has to do with the soul; to animate is to give life, Spirit. To ensoul. This soulful sand animation performance does that.
