Director's statement:
I wonder what it would be like to remember every language
every word spoken in every language... and then, knowing
those echoes of all the heartfelt tremors and lying deceivers
resonating with the sounds of all that has been spoken
then to write it down and not feel just a little bit like god
like christ, like the child of a god who had no daughters
and yet
and yet... elizabeth barrett browning speaks that way
like someone who remembers every word ever spoken
like someone who knows everything i ever thought and felt
and ten thousand million zillion other things
i never thought or felt or even imagined
and so she shines a light in my mind as bright as if ...
as if she were here speaking to me of the aurora borealis
the magic that descends perpetually from above...

we are lucky to have a double cast
ASL actors and vocalizing actors
weave a mantra of love
and the strength to carry that love
throughout the long journey we call life
