This Feels Like an Amazing Clue from a Supernatural Mystery

July 9th, 2010 Posted in Fun Clips, the writing process

I love this. Not only the creative inspiration — that someone saw those birds on the wire and made the imaginative leap to note them as musical symbols — but also that he, Jarbas Agnelli, had the energy and enthusiasm and talent to put all that work into it, culminating in a remarkable little video that lasts less than ninety seconds.

It’s got a Spielbergian, “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” feeling to it, don’t you think? The idea of nature sending us a secret message, a cipher.

If only we can open our eyes to see it, the secret that’s been right in front of us all along.

Again: Strikes me as a scene from a possible book.

The photo is reportedly by Paul Pinto. A skeptical person might wonder if it’s all a hoax, thanks to skilled photo manipulation, but I don’t think it matters one way or another.
