Better Than That

“Young man, listen. Young woman, take heed.”

The great cave was dark and cold, but at the place of the seer’s teaching the air glowed with warmth and an uncommon light.

“The real weight of your vows is carried in your obedience to the law of love.”

The lovers felt a deep stirring of concurrence. It is easy to agree. The ancient oracle continued.

“Learn the languages of love. Speak them well. Stand by your promises.”

Two hearts made promises. Two hearts beat sincere in their affections. And as the centuries rolled on, a billion more hearts did the same. Many sought the prophet’s wisdom and never once lost their way. Some slipped on their illuminated states and found the path once more. All found truth, whether centered on the road or wandering distant woods.

“And if the flames go cold, stoke the fire and add more fuel. Let your love burn hot again.”

all that really matters
is the essence of love we call desire


Since the grapevine symbolizes abundance and life, the yellowed fruits and barren branches of the vine in this video’s setting show a love that faded through the passing years.

With care and craving, we tend love and vines unto abundance once again.
