The waterwheel goes round, Lifetimes come and go in turn…

Happy New Year!

My first new year’s post has been inspired by a great movie I recently saw, It’s Isao Takahata’s : The Tale of princess Kaguya. I won’t get into any detail of it’s greatness as I feel I wouldn’t do it any justice, but I will say that an incredibly beautiful portrayal of the underlying theme of “Samsara” is what makes this film so special and very ad hoc with this post.

So It is a new year, a new cycle of a new year’s Samsara, the waterwheel goes round again one more time, and with this new cycle comes the closing of very important aspects of my life and the beginnings of a new adventures.

For once, the film I was working on ” Un Gallo Con Muchos Huevos” AKA ( A Little Brave Rooster ) has wrapped up production, and with it I close a cycle full of learning and growth. I feel so much melancholy and ache to see this great studio go on hiatus, and amazing team dismembered.

I have said it and will say it again, it was truly a team conformed by the very best talent Mexico had to offer and it was such a pleasure working with each and every one of the artists involved in the project. I came in with great expectations, I left blown away by the experience and people I met.

2014 ended with a very relaxing vacation, it was the perfect  ending for his cycle.

2015 brings great changes, a new city to live in and professionally new opportunities waiting to be uncovered.  I have to say, I am really excited.

So, to commemorate the end of a cycle and the beginning of 2015  I leave you ” Warabe Uta” ( Go round song ) from the soundtrack of  Princess Kaguya.

  1. Thanks for sharing Deni! This semester I am pushing all of my students to become owners of their data and publish #indieWeb style.

    Your posts (and those of others) help make my point. Nice reflections, I wish you the best in 2015.


  2. You might tell by now I’m stalking your older posts, but I just saw this movie today and it made me smile a lot to see this post of yours, I was just thinking about googling that song and suddenly I came upon it here in your blog. I love you my friend! 😀 a bit late but I know your 2015 will be awesome!
