On wilderness and fields of golden rape

"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty… The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self."

On a short Pentecostal leave to a renown country institute, Sam Renseiw pondered on the inter-connective wilderness of matter while driving along fields of oilseed rape.

SUNROOF ROCKS ! drive and flow sometimes overlapping, sometimes mutually exclusive.

- does it seem your view has a magenta edge to the right ?

the soundtrack sure remind me of "Little Fluffy Clouds" by ORB

Painterly lusciousness! What fine, intensely beautiful pieces. A post impressionistic flow of colour and image and natural wonder.

I'm lagging seriously behind in my comments. This is a wonderful voodle, I can think of nothing more to say except that its simplicity and point of view reminded me of early 'phantom ride' films such as Alexander Promio, the Lumiere's cameraman, made in the late 19th Century - perhaps as a consequence of this I prefer watching it silent, the journey sustains itself without sound.
