Unicorns do exist

The Unicorn is one of the most mysterious of all animals. It has been written about, told about and sung about for centuries and remains one of the ‘great unsolved mysteries’ of our world.

Despite the widely held belief in its existence, it has not been seen in centuries; but I have always known that unicorns do exist.

As a young child I made up stories about them and as I got older and had children and grandchildren of my own, I made up unicorn stories for them too.  One grandson was particularly enthralled by stories of Ronald who had a pet unicorn that he kept in the bedroom of his apartment.  The unicorn, for reasons known only to that grandchild, was called Bert.  Ronald and Bert had many adventures over the years.  Ronald first espied Bert from the window of the school bus and took him home with him.  Well the children were very young and believed anything their Granma told them.

So when I read this email from a friend :

British film director Sir Ridley Scott launched a global film making contest for aspiring directors. It’s titled “Tell It Your Way”. There were over 600 entries.

The film could be no longer than three minutes, contain only 6 lines of narrative & be a compelling story. The winner was “Porcelain Unicorn” from American director Keegan Wilcox.

It’s a story of the lifetimes of two people who are totally opposite, yet, very much the same – all told in less than 3 minutes.

And a quote on imagination by Michelangelo –

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”

  1. While I conjured quite a bit with my imagination, for some reason I never fancied unicorns.

  2. Amazing video. Thanks for sharing, Unicorns are magical and my daughter believed in them when she was little (perhaps still does).

    • As I said, I still believe in unicorns. They hold a special magic for me – I think it is in the horn protruding from the head. I love them.

  3. Oh Judith, your magic and the magic of the unicorn are in this post. The film is, of course, spectacular too.

  4. What a beautiful, yet heart-wrenching story. Thanks for finding this and sharing.
    Anne 🙂
