A story to ponder on a Sunday afternoon busy with holiday preparations. Take a break. Sit down and watch; it’s short — have a cup of tea why don’t you? Listen to the words, to the lovely melody.
This is one of my favorite videos. I’m a sucker for puppets, and there’s the whole archeological thing going on. I haven’t thought about it in a while, and then a search for something unrelated, reminded me. The song is by Josh Ritter. The video by Liam Hurley.
There are different takes on the song’s meaning. Being an optimist on matters of the heart, I prefer to think that the story is about boundless, never-ending love.
