I love seeing things come full circle. People, relationships, experiences. Meaning is found, reason is given, resolution is… granted. Peace. The stage you dreamed of performing on is the one you stand on now. The artist you idolized turns into someone you collaborate with. The family member who left, returns to your life. The ex you hated so much is your friend once more. All those questions and fears you had, you now have answers to.
Have you ever thought about what circles you are just beginning now? Perhaps even the ones you think are completing, are actually still revolving.
That same stage, you’re now over it. The artist you collaborated with becomes your competition. You realize you can’t forgive that family member. The ex you thought was just a friend still has feelings for you, as you secretly hoped. All those answers, just lead to new questions.
How do we really know when a cycle has ended? We can’t.. because time moves forward, and so, these circles continue to rotate. And that’s why I love the idea of “full circle”, because it gives me the momentary perception that there is rest, a conclusion.. until something comes along to stir it all up again.
To continue the show-and-tell of shorts that may never be released, here is another screen cap from something that was shot a few months ago which I’m not sure will ever come out.
Written and shot during a tumultuous time and mindset, I can’t say that it’s something I’d want to share with the public now, at least in the form it is in. It needs to be rewritten, re-considered. It’s really amazing to see how words and stories can change and evolve. But I know that this frame, this scene, will come full circle someday. Still rotating.
