Hope. Love. Change. Spread it all.
We are all put in boxes. We each have experienced what it's like to be told how we're "supposed" to behave, what we're "supposed" to like, who we're "supposed"... to be. We inherit these ideas when we're young children, and in turn, pass them on to our children and project these rules on others.
This weighs on us daily. This stifles our creativity and squashes our dreams. This closes our hearts to others. Old Birds invites us to participate in the rewarding and messy work of breaking apart the systems and structures that hold us, and our fellow humans, back.
Thanks to Jess Eliot Myhre for the production and storyboarding, Michael O. Snyder Photography and Interdependent Pictures for the videography. Thanks to everyone who participated in the video, especially the kids and parents champing it out for so many technical shots in the birthday party scene! Thanks to Chris Ousley for the pinata building, and thanks to Zachary Zimmerman for pinata explosions.
Most importantly, thanks to everyone who takes those bold steps everyday to be their authentic selves and sticks up for others to do so as well.
This Sunday! The Stompers unite with special guest and multi-instrumentalist Aaron Olwell at Lubber Run Park in Arlington, VA. Show starts at 6pm. More details below.
