When it comes to the Strange Beautiful Life series, there is no-one better than Alan Stokes to take us through it. Here are his words on episode 8, ‘Viva’.
“Whenever I go on these trips to far out places the first thing that really hits home is that the people of these lands still hold onto something that we seem to have lost. The ability to live life now, in the moment, day to day, minute by minute, there is no rush, no dramas, just their undivided attention when they greet you with a smile and a welcoming hand shake.
It puts a lot of things into perspective and makes me think about how best a life is lived. Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a negative moan, far from it! Just a thought process I’ve been wondering about lately. I’m not sure this will even make sense, it does to me, well kind of anyway, I hope it does to you or at least starts you thinking along the same lines. Its a funny old world right now.
Here’s the latest episode of StRaNGe Beautiful LIFE we had a great time on this trip but we haven’t been yet, it was edited and uploaded tomorrow and filmed next week, enjoy.”
Stokesy never fails to astound us, and if you understand what he’s on about, then you’re probably ready to watch this edit.
