Politics and Meditation

Wow, it’s been a year, right? I don’t know about you, but I’ve had a hard time dealing with all the stuff that’s going on. Even after the election, which I thought would be the end of it, it just felt like it just kept on coming. I felt exhausted and stressed all the time.

Then I started meditating. It’s not a magic bullet or anything, but it made it possible to deal with everything and keep on functioning. By the time the Capitol riots happened, I still felt frustration about it all but I could tell it wasn’t taking over my life like I think it would have before. So, anyways, I thought it’d be interesting to make a video about what that experience was like for me.

On a lighter note, if you’ve seen any of Julie Nolke’s Explaining the Pandemic to My Past Self series, you’ll recognize what my video is inspired by. It was a fun challenge to try to match that in style from camera angles to the font she used in the date at the beginning. It also made me wish I had a better camera, better sound, and better lighting; was a better actor, a better writer, and a better director. But hey, you work with what you’ve got. =)
