holy guacamole! (yes, i've gone and done it ...)
When you consider speaking, ask yourself whether what you have to say is an improvement on silence. (Swami Kripalu)
Sorry Bapuji, I forgot to ask.
Not a vlog but a video in which I attempt to tell stories, babble a fair bit, get teary eyed and have no real conclusion (but Mel, did I have content?) Yes, I did refrain from reading my more emotionally charged piece of memory retrieval ... if you watch this, you will understand just how emotional that other piece must be!
Profound thought from all of this: why does doing your own thing (or thang as it would sound spoken with a twang) become burdened by expectations and judgments? When did we lose the ability to just do what we love because, well, we love doing it?
And now I wonder ... is there some kind of adrenal rush from making these things? I am floating around now in a haze ...
(although, curse you Vimeo! There is some evil gremlin within who always ALWAYS chooses a screen shot where I look like I am about to be seriously ill on the laptop.)
