Lovely Little Song from “Amelie”

“Amelie” or its original title “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain” is a lovely little movie from 2001.  Adore it, and its soundtrack by Yann Teiersen.

Here is “La Valse D’Amelie (Orchestre)”

Rest is a good thing, but boredom is its brother...

A silly little “hand dance.”

Chorégraphie de la Main (Choreography of the Hand)

What is sketching if not choreographing movement for the hand. Instructing the fingers that hold the pen where to go, how lightly to tread, how quickly to dart, or how long to hesitate. To a melody or silence it matters not.  Like dance, it is art.  Unlike dance, however, it is an art of movement that leaves a line, a dot, a shadow.  Traditional dance has a fleeting existence. Once performed, it’s gone. In the twinkling of an eye, a flash of glorious light, all gone. Leaving only memories, emotions, and longings.

Whether your hands make masterpieces or doodles, it is creation. Let your hands dance and see what happens.

Yeah, it’s my new creative outlet. And, it’s mine. I invented it. It’s a thing now. This particular “hand dance” will culmanate in a lovely pegasus.
