A must share video..

Shaun Tan is an award winning Australian author/artist. From Perth in fact. I recently became familiar with his children's book, The Red Tree. It's an incredible examination of depression. Well, I see it as depression. It could be seen as feeling lost and trapped. Unsure of the road ahead. It's open to many interpretations of course. Discussing this with my children today opened my mind to various possibilities. I am constantly surprised how intuitive children are when given the chance.

I'm sharing this because I know some of you have been experiencing this and I hoped that it might be inspirational.

I also think this is an amazing fanvid. The use of original music is stunning, as is the sensitive editing and use of image.

Every time I watch this I get something different from it. You might like it. :)
