My sister sent me a video by the youtuber steveroggenbuck, and I loved watching it so much that I told Diana that I felt like I wanted to do something similar, but that I was sort of frightened to try.
She told me that it would be “soul-demanding, yes, but also really rewarding,” and expressed her excitement at seeing me yell passionately at a camera.
Standing alone in a field and trying to come up with meaningful things to say wasn’t as easy as it looked, and I still feel somewhat foolish about what ended up coming out.
But what’s life about if not stretching yourself to at least try doing something that could matter?
And Diana’s reaction alone made this entire project more than worth it.
