Pulchritudo Vivendi

There is this amazing video recorded by Kien Lam who travelled around the world and mashed the scenes of countries together (https://vimeo.com/34400428, Time is Nothing | Around the World Time Lapse) . Travel sets one free when you step on the top of a mountain and breath into the air of this magnificent world in front of you, seeing and feeling what is like to be truly alive.

Last week I was walking on campus, and a group of college kids were singing BSB’s I Want It That Way on the yard, in completely random tunes, very loud and with joy, definitely amazing beyond words; when you are filled with happiness, as if the world around you just suddenly stopped, time has disappeared,  and you become a part of the air around you and you can just jump into the sky, bouncing with joy. And that’s how I felt.

Video stumbled upon on Vimeo (so haunting! Especially view it in full screen!). The music is “Call to Beroea” by Luke Richards; the music surrounds you with all the elements generated from the camera work of the mountains in a cinematic way and you feel as if the mountains are alive; immersed in and captured by these elements, you can even feel the bump of their heartbeats below the ice and snow.
