We feel that the pressures of our current culture prevent us from the self study that most of us need in order to be integrated beings. Human hearts don’t operate on any schedule that we can impose, and they can’t be fixed efficiently, step by step, so that we can return to our previous lives unchanged. When faced with deep losses and tragedies, many of us are forced to swallow down the lump in our throats as soon as Monday arrives. But grief, like sleep or like hunger, must be listened to. If it is not, individuals and societies becomes sick from not attending to their own needs. Through NOA, we hope to work against the chronic and repressed grief that so many of us face in the current culture, showing the beauty, the bravery, and the mysterious wonder of navigating our darkest places.
There are two possible interpretations of this video: you can see the two characters as navigating the ending of a relationship with each other, or you can also choose to see it as two individuals working through their own inner processes of loss and and grief as they listen to Taylor's music on the porch.
