amazing how much YOU can say with quiet. LOVE!
Passing along this Facebook comment from my post of this vid…
It was beautiful. It was familiar (as I ride my bike ‘here’ and am ‘here’ a lot). It was emotional and well crafted without needing words. It was calming and creative. But I also always wonder if she doesn’t get to be there because she is there behind a lens. And what impact that has on being here, now.
That was very calming in my hectic day! It made me realize that I need to slow down and appreciate what is around me.
That’s quite a challenge, to tell a story in video of how we tell our stories in video. Her experience feels both private to her and yet familiar, and I love how the perspective shifts and melts from hers to ours.
It’s also interesting to think about my own history, traveling cross country over 20 years ago and arriving in San Francisco at the front door of an apartment building with only a buzzer number and no one home. How different it might have been, to send a quick text or even a photo, but this was before cell phones and digital cameras were popular. I may have journaled about the experience but the only visual record of the 24-hour experience that had me overnighting in Marin lies in the fading recesses of my mind.
