Birds on the Wires

I came across this extraordinary little video on Superhero Journal, an inspiring blog that I frequent. It's been published all over the place at this point but I wanted it chronicled here too. The story behind it, from creator Jarbas Agnelli, goes like this:

"Reading a newspaper, I saw a picture of birds on the electric wires. I cut out the photo and decided to make a song, using the exact location of the birds as notes (no Photoshop edit). I knew it wasn't the most original idea in the universe. I was just curious to hear what melody the birds were creating."

Sometimes people absolutely astound me and I can believe even more deeply in our connection to nature, each other and the universe.

Ok, that actually made me tear up. Thank you for sharing. I had seen the video around but never actually hit "play." I'm glad I did.
