it’s hard being forgotten and left behind

Because I love spending time in YouTube, I find so many things to admire about the creativity in this world. On many levels I adore this one, the text of which was written and directed by Steve Baker. It was the 2007 winner of Tropfest, which is pegged as the world’s largest short film festival and widely regarded for its support of new filmmaking talent. Here’s something for all of you who encourage and value imagination as well as those who had childhood friends no one else could see. Have you ever wondered what happens to them when you grow up and move on? It runs 4 minutes and 55 seconds, and well worth the time.

  1. Oh MY Gosh…..will you be able to hold out until Saturday. Yes, we have 14 that we rarely see. There is a sadness that we don’t see moore of them, but we have become very insular. The new waffle maker was a huge success with one of them. In the meantime, I am so pleased two are getting to travel so far away from home, and that one of them may be accepted to Berkley. Very exciting news. This kid doesn’t have any hangups that I did.

  2. I love imaginary friends. My father had one, I had one, my children all had one … This little clip made me almost homesick for them. Dad’s was an elephant, mine was a playmate, one of my son’s was a friendly bear … They were darned good friends, too!

It's always nice to know what you're thinking...
