Simple Moodlings \'sim-pѳl 'mϋd-ѳl-ings\ n: 1. modest meanderings of the mind about living simply and with less ecological impact; 2. "long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering" (Brenda Ueland) of the written kind; 3. spiritual odds and ends inspired by life, scripture, and the thoughts of others
Here is one of my favourite stories as I remember seeing it after a movie ended early one night and the station decided to fill some time with this animated short. Its message is even more important today. Sometimes nature needs a helping hand, and a little perseverance goes a long way. We can all do small but important things like Elzeard Bouffier, whether he was real or not.
Thanks to my sister Jeanine for reminding me of this one. Please, if you can, watch both parts. The animation is really beautiful, as is the story.
