Dear artistic people of both practice and heart – especially those on their lunch hour, sitting at their desks, eating their Chipotle burrito and feeling cooped up on another frigid winter day- please watch this video. It is the best 20 minutes I have spent on the internet in a very very long time. I watched and listened to it while I was cleaning my desk for the next chapter of work and ideas and it built some wings on my back, I hope to test out this week. I hope it does the same for you.
I found this via Lynda Barry’s tumblr and I dedicate it to the librarians at my local library.

This is amazing. Thank you! So much. My dad will love this.
Amazing, Summer, thanks for passing this on!
One of your local library clerks!
Thank you so much for sharing, Summer. I can remember when I got my first library card at 6 years old. I would check out my limit–3 books–walk home, read them, and go back again to check out 3 more. My love of books led me to a Bachelor’s in English Literature and grad school for Library and Info. science (but only completed a year). “Fahrenheit 451” has always been one of my favorite books, and R. B. one of my all-time favorite authors. There is no greater magic than the written word and fingers touching velvety worn pages of precious old books.
Thank you for sharing this amazing video. What a great way to start my day. I am filled with the images of myself as a child running my hands over the spines of books as I wandered up and down the bookshelves in the library. Such joy and happiness.
I listened to this while I was typing my comment on the post below. It kind of balanced out my angst!
