If Ever… a video

Some people seemed to like this simple song inspired by my first daughter, Niamh, when I posted it here a while ago. The other night when I was outside with my dogs, the moon and clouds seemed to combine in particularly beautiful patterns and it gave me the idea for this video. It also occurred to me that a video that’s mostly clouds would probably be within my limited technical capabilities with Windows Movie Maker.

The images seemed appropriate for a song about love, the passing of time , mortality, memory – all the great themes that pass through your head when you lie with your child asleep on your chest and you can just feel her growing.

Here’s the link. Any comments or suggestions very welcome, as always.

I have a puppy as my avatar. How many puppies do you need?

OK, here’s some more. They arrived unexpectedly when a dog we were fostering for a shelter decided to give birth to eleven of them a week ahead of schedule.

Hi Gavin, the video (you say it is your first you did) is wonderful. The sky is always wonderful, even when it is terrible or menacing, and the clouds always show a strange dance, up, up, and down… If you ever need help with any doubt or in any other way with your videos, tell me and I will be happy to help you. You help me with English, and I would correspond with what I know how to do.

The song is very sweet but it has made me sad, or perhaps nostalgic.

I did not know that to live we had to die so many times

Sorry to make you sad, Mora!

If I do another video, I might well take you up on your kind offer. Your videos are always fascinating.

Hi, Gavin!

How are you?

Very nice girl with some freckles on her face :)

The song is very pleasant with some bright and fragile atmosphere.
Your style is recognisable, I think you have your unique touch here.

Not only a puppy on your avatar but also a hamster in you Facebook. XD

It’s a good song to have a rest and to dream a little :)

Thank you for sharing)
