A friend shared this video with me and it made me think of two things.
1. The concept of strangers. I think my goal is to not leave anyone I encounter as a stranger. I think that strangers are friends I have not met yet. I feel sad thinking that two people who shared an intimate relationship could be come so estranged. I hope that all of my partners in life call me “friend” regardless of our relationship status. It was really good for me to ponder this because I think there are a few people I have left with something other than an invitation of friendship. I’ve got some contacting to do!
2.Media inspires me! This video reminded me why I make media. It isn’t tell someone else my message. And it isn’t to have a conversation. It is to make people think. To make people question. And to make THEM start conversation. I am so grateful to do what I love everyday!
