Cart - The Film from Jesse Rosten on Vimeo.
[forgive me, if you seen this video on here before - this is a Lilies repeat] Well worth it though.. .
I've shown this to my students every year.
[made my mom watch it endless times with me, as well]
We use it during Writing Workshop.
It will faithfully stir up deep conversations and comments.
and without fail every year, I tear up.
5:24 the music... .
as the man pulls the cart out of the dirt and grim.
hauling it out of the depths
feverishly cleaning it off
every last bit of darkness clinging to its handlebars
i can't help but envision Jesus here.
He's all I see
rescuing us from our despair.
from the corners of our dusty lives.
from our pain.
and as the cart rolls away after a loving and gentle pat:
the grafitti behind reads 'Is this Really Life?'
.. . smart work, Jesse.
