As much as arbitrary demarcations of time (Happy New Year!) serve as an opportunity to reaffirm one’s faith in a better future, they are similarly useful in enforcing a reflection on the how’s and why’s of where we’ve come to be. In that spirit I share Last Minutes With Oden, a glorious film eulogy about a dog who transformed his owner; putting him in a position to be optimistic about the world again. Through said owner’s description it is clear that Oden’s passing serves as the close to one of those natural epochs in life that prompt reflection and engender hope. A simple but beautifully touching tale.
