My BFF is Mary. We’ve been friends for 40 years now. Since the late 1970’s, she and her partner James have shared land with us, when they can make the trip, here in West Virginia. They built their own little cabin on their side of the land just after I built my round cabin in 1974. Mary and James are both excellent Landscapers. Mary has always had the innate ability to create the most beautiful planned, (yet looking so natural), flower gardens.
This movie is an homage to Mary’s ‘art in the dirt’ here in West Virginia, and how much it has meant to me personally…. to be lucky enough to have her in my life. Enjoy!
First set the movie window to view full screen (square frame symbol, at bottom right of viewing window). THEN hit the arrow in the viewing screen to start the movie. Then quickly (or pause the video) make sure to set the viewing size to AT LEAST 720 HD (the sun shaped symbol bottom right corner of the viewing window), or even 1080 HD, for the best and sharpest view!
Here’s a small film (less than 5 min), about sharing my 40 years in West Virginia with a best friend and my patient, kind, ‘can’t live without him’ partner, building our homes and lives from the ground up.
The soundtrack is from a Hawaiian artist named IZ- it’s his island version of “Country Roads”. ENJOY!
Our forest, when the rain is abundant, is filled with mushrooms and lichens and mosses. They are usually only out for a day or two and then ‘slime away’ or are eaten by critters or bugs. We have ourselves eaten a few, (well-researched for safety’s sake), but usually leave them to reproduce and spread their spores to the wind…
This Summer Ride 2013, is shot with a handlebar mount gopro camera…. from our house, down our long dirt driveway and out onto our country dirt then paved road for a few miles, then back home. My better half did the riding and shooting and I did the editing and adding the music- music fit for a summer ride on our country roads.
Go to full screen, pause, set to highest HighDef 1080p (sun symbol, lower right of screen), wait 15-25 sec to buffer, then unpause- (It’ll be ready and go from fuzzy to clear, when a red box with HD appears over the sun symbol). Enjoy!
