Reflect



“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” 

Mark Twain



This time I was inspired by the story of The Man Who Planted Trees (L'homme qui plantait des arbres). see here
Elzéard Bouffier, the protagonist, wasn't definitely a man who was on the side of the majority....

  2. That is one of my favorite short films. And you know, I have always been the square peg trying to fit into the round hole. Well, to be honest I don't try to fit anymore. Nice art, Arty.
