It's hard to remember the good advice you've been giving yourself over the weekend, over the holidays, during your downtime, when your thoughts were able to clear up and focus on what really matters. It's hard to keep life lessons in mind on a Monday. Making the day matter. But beauty helps. It helps every time. So here's two (OK, three) beautiful videos that made me feel as if I was being reminded about something important, something hard to remember and even harder to put into words. In the first one, FKA Twigs performs 'Hide' in a Mayan village and all you can do really, is stare.
FKA Twigs - 'Hide'
Space the only thing I ever knew Place with the time I know I'll have to choose, no stay beneath the ground hide away from you I sink into the crowd if it meant that I'd escape alright Hate the only thing I give to you Now Face me if you think you can take another route out I let my sight be slayed if it meant that I could form a view I found another way to caress my day
The second video is also part of the 'Young Turks' series for Dazed Digital and features Caroline Polachek (from Chairlift) singing a Handel aria while partially submerged in a rocky jungle lake.
