Excerpt from “The Waves” by Boris Pasternak

We were in Georgia. You can get this land 
If hell is multiplied by paradise, 
Bare indigence by tenderness, and if 
A hothouse serves as pedestal for ice.

And then you’ll know what subtle doses of 
Success and labor, duty, mountain air 
Make the right mixture with the earth and sky 
For man to be the way we found him there.

The Laughing Heart Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed byNacho Jáuregui 2017

Cinematography by: Izhan Galiana
Music by: Ryan Taubert

Narrated by: Tom O’Bedlam

“A few months ago, a friend and I went to discover Morocco for a personal project. It was an amazing experience for both of us, and some of the witnessed places were breathtaking. I’m pretty sure that I’ll be back sooner or later.

So, with some of the images that we recorded, I made this little tribute to Mr. Charles Bukowski and his poem ‘The Laughing Heart’. And, of course, to my colleague Izhan, who’s being a fellow companion these last couple of years. For more adventures like this!”

“The Laughing Heart” by Charles Bukowski

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you.

“Postscript” by Seamus Heaney 

Some time make the time to drive out west
Into County Clare, along the Flaggy Shore,
In September or October, when the wind
And the light are working off each other
So that the ocean on one side is wild
With foam and glitter, and inland among stones
The surface of a slate-grey lake is lit
By the earthed lightening of flock of swans,
Their feathers roughed and ruffling, white on white,
Their fully-grown headstrong-looking heads
Tucked or cresting or busy underwater.
Useless to think you’ll park or capture it
More thoroughly. You are neither here nor there,
A hurry through which known and strange things pass
As big soft buffetings come at the car sideways
And catch the heart off guard and blow it open.

Words and Narration by: OSHO Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

“How was India?”

The world has enough technology now
If it’s old prejudices and stupidity can be dropped
We can make the whole world a paradise, nothing is lacking

If we can reach to the moon
If we can create so much destructive power
The same power can be transferred into creativity.

You are a guest
Leave this Earth, a little more beautiful
For those unknown guests who will be following you
Nobody belongs here
But for the moment we are here
And we have to make this moment as beautiful as possible.

Wherever you are, it will be here and now
Live as intentionally and totally now
Otherwise, life goes on slipping from your hands like water
Soon you will have empty hands
And meeting death with empty hands, is an utter failure.

“The Problem Of The Wilderness”: A Cinematic Poem Short Film Directed By Tom Welsh (2017)

Filmed, Edited and Directed by:  Tom Welsh

Music by: Bob Bradley
Narrated by: Daniel Dorse

“I went to Alaska for New Year with my friend Dan. We spent a week travelling North from Anchorage by rail, 4×4 & light aircraft.

The verse is from a book I found in our cabin that really resonated with the journey. Marshall was an environmental activist who wrote extensively about Alaska in the early 20th Century.”

“The Problem of the Wilderness” by Bob Marshall (1930)

It is well to reflect that the wilderness furnishes perhaps the best opportunity for pure esthetic enjoyment. This requires that beauty be observed as a unity, and that for the brief duration of any pure esthetic experience the cognition of the observed object must completely fill the spectator’s cosmos. There can be no extraneous thoughts—no question about the creator of the phenomenon, its structure, what it resembles or what vanity in the beholder it gratifies. “The purely esthetic observer has for the moment forgotten his own soul”;11 he has only one sensation left and that is exquisiteness. In the wilderness, with its entire freedom from the manifestations of human will, that perfect objectivity which is essential for pure esthetic rapture can probably be achieved more readily than among any other forms of beauty.

“The Clouded Morning” by Jones Very

The morning comes, and thickening clouds prevail,
    Hanging like curtains all the horizon round,
Or overhead in heavy stillness sail;
    So still is day, it seems like night profound;
Scarce by the city’s din the air is stirred,
    And dull and deadened comes its every sound;
The cock’s shrill, piercing voice subdued is heard,
    By the thick folds of muffling vapors drowned.
Dissolved in mists the hills and trees appear,
    Their outlines lost and blended with the sky;
And well-known objects, that to all are near,
    No longer seem familiar to the eye,
But with fantastic forms they mock the sight,
As when we grope amid the gloom of night.

“Iceland is said to be the Mekas landscape for photographers. It is considered as the country of fascinating contrasts. Broadly known as “The Land of Fire and Ice”, it is home to both a portion of the biggest ice sheets in Europe, and probably the most active volcanoes on the planet.

Iceland is the place where there is light and dimness, where long summer days with almost 24-hours of daylight are counterbalanced by short winter days.
Icelandic scenenery still remains for all intents and purposes untouched by human progress.
