Shawn performs the narration, music, and video production on this beautiful, human short film.
We are lonely, because we have forgotten how to be inquisitive. Questions are the doorway into the mind of a companion. A question, and the understanding of the answer, creates empathy. And empathy is all that stands between war and peace. Hunger and health. Isolation and loneliness. Life and death.
If I meet a person — let’s say out on the street or in a bar — they can tell me what makes them happy. What makes them whole as a person. I could spend time with them attempting to go deep on an emotional, and real, raw level. But, I believe, until a person reveals something like what Ronnie F wrote about dealing with loneliness, I don’t really get to share in who Ronnie is on a deep level, until she lets me in through a vulnerable place. And that vulnerable place, is usually — in all of us — hidden, in deep seeded negative emotions.
This film is beautiful.
