MENCARI INSPIRASI

Salamun’alaikum.

Alhamdulillah, syukur ke hadrat Ilahi Rabbi kerana masih lagi memberi keizinan pada diri penulis untuk terus bernafas dan menjalankan rutin harian sebagai bekal hari kemudian.

Memang penulis sedar, agak lama juga blog mofas.wordpress ini tidak dipenuhi dengan entri tulisan penulis. Ramai juga rakan rapat penulis yang menegur tentang perkara ini. Terima kasih kerana mengikut rapat perkembangan blog ini.

Seperti biasa apabila ada yang menegur maka jawapan yang keluar dari mulut penulis adalah, “urusan pejabat banyak yang perlu diselesaikan”, “talian internet agak perlahan kebelakangan ini” dan pelbagai lagi jawapan yang difikirkan boleh oleh penulis.

Yang pasti, perkara yang penting perlu penulis utamakan iaitu tanggungjawab penulis sebagai pendidik. Kerana bagi diri penulis, apa yang perlu ditinggalkan di dunia ini selepas kematian bukannya nama tetapi adalah ilmu yang bermanfaat.

Setelah agak lama tidak menulis, penulis dapat rasakan bahawa kotak fikiran kekurangan idea dan juga inspirasi untuk menulis. Puas juga penulis fikir apa yang perlu ditulis pada kali ini, tapi masih tetap buntu.

Akhirnya penulis menjumpai klip video dari youtube ini yang sangat menarik pada hemat penulis dan turut memuatkan inspirasi yang membakar semangat penulis kembali.

Sama-sama kita saksikan.

Don’t dare to miss this amazing Video Clip.

This video shows the winner of “Ukraine’s Got Talent”,  Kseniya Simonova, 24, drawing a series of pictures on an illuminated sand table showing how ordinary people were affected by the German invasion during World War II.

Her talent, which admittedly is a strange one, is mesmeric to watch.  The images, projected onto a large screen, moved many in the audience to tears and she won the top prize of about $75,000.

She begins by creating a scene showing a couple sitting holding hands on a bench under a starry sky, but then warplanes appear and the happy scene is obliterated.  It is replaced by a woman’s face crying, but then a baby arrives and the woman smiles again. Once again war returns and Miss Simonova throws the sand into chaos from which a young woman’s face appears.

She quickly becomes an old widow, her face wrinkled and sad, before the image turns into a monument to an Unknown Soldier. This outdoor scene becomes framed by a window as if the viewer is looking out on the monument from within a house.

In the final scene, a mother and child appear inside and a man standing outside, with his hands pressed against the glass, saying goodbye.  The Great Patriotic War, as it is called in Ukraine, resulted in one in four of the population being killed with eight to 11 million deaths out of a population of 42 million.

Kseniya Simonova says: “I find it difficult enough to create art using paper and pencils or paintbrushes, but using sand and fingers is beyond me. The art, especially when the war is used as the subject matter, even brings some audience members to tears. And there’s surely no bigger compliment.”
