"When an old hermit monk has his day interrupted by an uninvited guest, he is unwillingly taken on a journey to discover the true meaning of companionship."
This is one of the sweetest things I've ever watched, a beautiful digital animation.
I discovered this the other day and couldn't believe it hadn't already had hundreds of thousands of views, so I decided to see what I could do to change that.
When I first watched it there had only been 711 views since it was posted 18 months ago, I tweeted it, and shared it on Facebook, within 24 hours 150 people had viewed it. I took a look this morning & it now has 1,503 views!! That's 792 views, and over DOUBLE as many views as it had had in 18 months, in only 2 days... That is the power of social media!
So if you love this brilliant piece of art, if it touched your heart the way it touched mine, please share it with your friends, so that it can touch their hearts too!
Lets see if we can share this little treasure with hundreds of thousands of people, we can start by sharing it with the people we care about, so they can enjoy it too :)
I wanted to steal it & add it into my blog but he beat me to it by leaving a comment below! :)
I still wanted to highlight this question nonetheless, because it's brilliant & genius, and thinking about this question as you watch it might just open up a whole new learning and discovery about parts of yourself that you didn't even know you had!
I'll place my answer in the comments below! Thanks Jon!!
