Sea Chant


Yes it’s as cold in London as it could physically be. It’s snowing, and that’s pretty cold.

Yet I chose this week to torture myself by watching this painfully beautiful video i stumbled upon by storytelling outfit in pictures, sound, and video. This is a video they made for the popular lifestyle magazine Kinfolk, called ‘Ode to Summer’.

Yeah. If you are familiar with Kinfolk – you can imagine what it’s like… [envy inducing] but do click play to watch. It will transport you away to warmer memories. It’s languorously slow and luxuriously pointless… just like summer. Go on, you deserve it.
