Sunday Uplift - Come Again In Spring

For this cold Sunday in January, a lovely piece of animation - Belinda Olford's "Come Again In Spring" (again from the Canadian National treasure, NFOC).

This gentle tale about mortality works in subliminal ways. When an old man is visited by Death at his home in the meadows, he has to delve deep to secure more time for himself. Does he have the strength to find the answers he needs? Can we negotiate our time on earth? How do we reconcile our mortal fate? A lyrical look at a reality as old as humanity, yet as young as today. Based on a story by Richard Kennedy.
