[A Pause]: An #Ode to Living On #Earth

Visual artist (and a favourite kids book author in our house), Oliver Jeffers, delivers his second TEDTalk in over a decade with this beautiful letter to his newborn son. I rarely view anything three times (let alone twice!) on the Internet, but the mesmerizing combination of Jeffers’ lilting rhythm, magnificent poetic delivery, and use of his original (and stylized) illustrations and animations compelled me to bookmark this piece with an expectation to return to it again and again in this time of uncertainty and disconnection.

Enjoy.

Share.

Be kind.
