This little film made me smile when I first saw it, but after a second view I felt quite emotional when I started to realise that the internet for some is not just an amusement, but a lifeline, for those that cannot leave their home or even their bed due to illness, in the physical or mental sense. And I wonder if it was thoughts of this kind that inspired the creation of this little film. My mum had a lot of physical illness from the age of forty onwards, and many years ago even I had a period of three months when I couldn’t leave the house at all due to a very severe illness. It was a horrible time in my young life, and one I’ll never forget. And I often wonder what that period of extreme illness would have been like if there had been such a thing as the internet in those days, where my mum and I could have accessed all these wonderful things available to us today, just a distraction for a little while from the unkindness of illness.
If you are someone viewing this blog and you are in that unpleasant place in life right now, stuck at home, or a hospital bed, I just want to say I know how you feel and I often think of people like yourself while I create this blog. And that is partly why I have a collection of pages with so many shared videos, because sometimes just to watch something relaxing is all you can cope with.
Enjoy the journey 😀
