Thoughts like Wildfire [Inspiration #2]

I love the idea of letting thoughts wander and grow.  You find so much about yourself if you wrote down a strain of thoughts, letting them weave in and out of possibility and taking form in reality.  I once heard someone say "think of the impossible and then try to do it."  The point is to try.  Where would society be today if no one ever tried to impossible?  And who's to say what's impossible? No man can make your boundaries, only you can, right?

Today's thought of inspiration comes from a friend of mine, Emily.  She told me about this artist named Ryan Woodward.  He's worked for major motion studios, storyboarding for some great features.  In 2010, he created an amazing animated short film that took me by surprise.  Titled Thought of You, it's a simple animated drawing of two dancers.  Not to say it's impossible to draw & animate life-like dancers, but I'm all-the-more inspired.
