Whatever floats your boat...
I do personal vids in tandem with journal writing and this was a tiny piece of a private vid to myself (I was recovering from the flu).
Your letter to yourself reminded me of it. I'm laughing at this, Margaret, basically you proved me wrong ("You can't do this with writing.")
Do you ever peer into the camera lens and wonder who it is that's looking back at you. It's YOU, but a future you. But when you're looking into it, you have no idea how far into the future you're projecting.
How old is that person (future-self) who will, at some point, stumble across the video while cleaning up her files, or is curious to see her messages from the past?
What has she experienced that you have yet to know?
What does she know in terms of how futile, silly, irrelevant, or profound your present words are...?
