IN SEARCH OF...
What is this?
It feels warm.
But where is it found?
In The Game
In The World of Fantasy
I know it's out there
and it feels good.
But maybe it was nothing
just a fleeting thought.
something to be taken away.
Where did it go?
Maybe if I just tried harder
or what if I just gave up
would *it* find *me*?
I'll find one fragment
and tomorrow I'll find another.
But I need your help.
to find all the pieces
along this crazy little journey

If the message isn't clear, just try adding words to the end of the title. "In Search of... [Happiness]" is probably the most suitable way of looking at it-- but I didn't want to get too specific since it's about more than just the search for happiness. It's about that thing in life that we search for, but can't quite put our finger on what it is. The first part of the video tries to explore this idea through examples.
The middle part takes a different approach. Instead of seeing examples of when 'it' is present, I tried to show what things are like when 'it' is not present. Too often, people don't recognize good things until they are taken away.
The last part tries to ask "Well, what should we do about it?"
-please don't watch in preview mode. The video is 720p for a reason.
-Some people may find the text too intrusive, so a text-less version is available
-The musical artist actually joined the .org [dydjej_inja] and contacted me. He even left an opinion saying he liked it-- including the audio edits I did [the full song is 7:24 in length].
-dydjej_inja is part of ccmixter.org here: http://ccmixter.org/people/dydjej_inja

As always, any feedback would be appreciated
