Song of the Open Road – Walt Whitman

I edited this after driving around Oregon for a week just before my twins were born. I animated the footage to really let the words settle in. This poem is as relevant now as it was the day Whitman wrote it. There’s the line Out of the dark confinement! out from behind the screen! where he seems to have predicted what we’d be doing with our time more than a century later.

Narrated was taken from Poetry & Prose version. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxUTe…
