THE BEAUTIFUL GAME
I am still working furiously to meet a dissertation deadline (which may or may not have passed two weeks ago, ha!) and finish up some archival research here in D.C. But I wanted to take a quick moment to share this beautiful video BOUNCE in honor today's opening of the 2014 World Cup. You know I have a soft spot for when sports meets design, and thus I couldn't wait to share this gorgeously shot, uplifting little film with you. Made by French filmmaker Guillaume Blanchet, it was filmed during two years' worth of Blanchet's international travels and has already been nominated for a ton of awards.
Sports can divide us, unite us, throw us in a pit of despair (holler, Prince Bride reference!) or elevate us to the joyous heights of victory. I am sure we will see all that and more on tap for the World Cup and I can't wait! But for now, back to writing!
p.s. Go Team USA!
p.p.s. Fingers crossed this dang chapter will be done by the weekend I will see you back here with regular posts on Monday. Wish me luck!
