Very moving and relatable, as well as visually gorgeous.
Wow I loved this, when I was a little girl and visited my grandparents, we would walk around the neighborhood and there was these tree or bush I would always want to go touch, called “mimosa” whose leaves closed when you touched them…I thought it was so magical!! Every time I see tree with leaves like that, I slide my finger to see if they moved, but they never do. I’ve never seen one of those again!! I loved it a lot :)
what a gem!
gives me the same feeling i get after a great movie <3
