Shishilop Project: Take 2

September 18, 2008

So I have spent most evenings the last two weeks at Surfer’s Point, chasing a non-foggy, windfree sunset with this poem, trying to record without as much turbulence as the first go round to submit it for consideration to GuerrillaReads. Unfortunately, this is the equation: sunset + beach = wind.

After numerous attempts (some quite humourous–I may do an “outtakes” video), I finally came up with a solution and this version. What do you think? To see the original video, go here.

While the recording aspect has been frustrating and hilarious (including getting run-off by two guys in a golf cart), I have enjoyed watching the sun traverse the sky, feeling the season change from summer to fall, following the moon’s growth to full.
