    I love the way it was put together. It showed each moment as an individual snapshot in time forming a whole, but at the same time a whole in the individual snapshots. It reminds me of a book I read Sophie's World. it said that all time is, are moments, like photos, linked together to form a whole movie, such as in old films.

    The video put things into perspective. Shows how insignificant I and we all are.

    Gassho,

    Dogen said "because flowing is a characteristic of time, moments of past or present do not overlap or line up side by side"
    he goes on and on in a nonsensical way saying this and that and everything is time. Then he says 'when timelessness is realized, you are alive.'

    Wow. I love this. It got me on the thought that life is truly in the transitions. As a theatre director, I always had the hardest times in staging transitions between scenes. Perhaps these are quite difficult because life is just one big, wonderful transition--ever changing. Thank you for this! --Anzan

    An un-obstructing dharmabody is so magnificent; beyond profound.

    Not to detract from this lovely film, I am reminded of a segment from the movie "American Beauty" in which a simple, mundane plastic bag, spent leaves, a brick wall and a gentle breeze create a dance that is momentarily "complete'. I had originally written "beautifully complete", and then felt that the adjective is also just a concept. Thich Nhat Han Hanh gives it all equanimity by calling it "inter being", beyond defiled and immaculate.
