Moving sand art



My mother's father was from the Ukraine. I grew up hearing, tasting and admiring all things Russian. He died when my mother was 13 (murdered, long strange story) so I never knew him. But she passed along some of this heritage through her passion for Russian artists (mostly dancers), blinis at The Russian Tea Room, and through the music. Oh. How I love the music. I wish that she were still here to have felt this performance with me. I hope one of you watching is as blown away by it as I am.

wow Madeline, that was amazing. I loved the cello in the music too. Abbi came up behind towards the end and asked me if I recognized the song and apparently it's a Metallica song "Nothing else matters" cool video

yep, the last one is Metallica! I was so surprised. I wish I could find out all of the music. I'm hooked on watching all of these Ukrainian sand videos now! So far, this one is my favorite.
