Speechless and in awe

I am sitting here all lumpy-throated.  Sometimes the phenomenal human mind and the indomitable human spirit absolutely choke me up. 

(Some context: This work of art/performance is inspired by the invasion of the Soviet Union in 1941 and the enormous military and civilian deaths in WW2 -- which were about 20-25 million. The Ukraine was laid to ruins in the fighting that ensued.)

Thanks to Marco for sending this to me!

how utterly utterly stunning - what a talent to have and what a lovely way to tell such a dramatic story.
