Harold and Maude scene: Glorious Birds

I think this is such a great clip to draw inspiration from during this uncertain time. If you watch carefully you will see the numbers on Maude's arm indicating she survived the Holocaust. Her talking about Dreyfus being in jail on Devil's Island seeing the "glorious birds" seems to metaphorically parallel her time in the Holocaust. Even in the most horrific circumstances she found beauty and meaning in the world around her. Her mind was still free to see beauty just like the birds are free to fly. That was her lesson to the world.

There are still so many glorious birds to look for each day as we make our way through the uncertainty.

1. I loved that movie.

I would love to build a contraption like she used to toss bird seed out the window for the birds. I loved that.
