The Beekeeper

03 Mar 2012

Megan Paska, a backyard farmer and rooftop beekeeper:

Being a beekeeper has given me a real sense of purpose. That’s my religion, that’s what keeps me sane, that’s what keeps me connected to the world and I need it. If I don’t have that, I am lost. This is the first time in my life where I’ve felt absolutely like I’m on the right path.

The Beekeeper is the third video by Made by Hand, a project which “aims to promote that which is made locally, sustainably, and with a love for craft”. There is a beauty in the work that they do, drawing out honest portraits of people who have found their passions. With each video that I watch, I find myself envying the storytellers and the subjects because both parties get to be artists. They accept that which calls to them and throw themselves into it.

There can be no greater purpose than that.
