The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore

I've been away on a week-long trip, visiting Charlene's sister in New Orleans then driving across the Panhandle to visit Charlene's parents in the Tampa area. 

We had a great time, narrowly avoiding Hurricane Debbie and spending a few days (just the two of us) at our new favorite beach, Grayton Beach near the Destin area.

Anyway, in honor of our time spent in Louisiana here's the video of the Academy Award Winning short animated film, The Fantastic Flying Books of Morris Lessmore, an amazing piece of art. Thank you, Yvette, at In So Many Words for finally giving me the push to watch this. It was made by Moonbot Studios in Louisiana and it incorporates some imagery from New Orleans and a storm that invokes Katrina.

But most importantly, for me, is what this film says about a life spent reading. Just watch it, especially if you love books.
