This evening, I went over to my parents’ house to celebrate my uncle’s 65th birthday. We had delicious corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, salad, and homemade Irish soda bread for dinner (thanks Mom!) and afterwards, with a bit of help, I made a fire in the backyard in my parents’ chiminea. We sat around the fire all evening and even sang a few songs. It was lovely.
To capture the feeling of the night, I made a simple video of our fire and set it to the song “The Blizzard’s Never Seen the Desert Sands” by the Tallest Man on Earth.
This evening, I made a tiny short film about the snow since there is a snowstorm going on in Chicago right now. Note: I always pretend that I don’t like the snow because it’s dirty and cold, but I actually think it’s pretty.
