A Peak into The World of Alzheimer’s

I could probably make a thousand different video introduction to my book The Sea is Wide: A Memoir of Caregiving. Well, maybe ten. Point is, there are so many different important things I want to share about my book and they can’t all fit in one video. And there are some ideas that I could present in several different types of videos. This is a long way of saying I had to restrain myself and pick just one idea, and one way of presenting that idea, for the first video introducing my book.

It turned out mostly how I wanted. Give me a couple of months and a better version of software and it could be tons better, and more polished. But I don’t have all the time in the world, and I don’t have better software. So with what I have–yeah, it got across what I wanted to communicate.

And what was that? In this case I wanted to convey more a feeling than information. I tried, as best I could, to make the person watching the video feel what I felt caring for Grandpa. I wanted them to feel the feelings I tried to convey in my book. I think I managed to do that. Watch, and tell me what you think!

    I like the video. It has a quiet simplicity that speaks well for the relationship you and your grandpa had, and I loved that the song was playing in the background as well as your grandpa’s voice. I think your effort to evoke feeling was successful–certainly for me, at least.

      Thanks! The software was very frustrating to work with but I’m glad it seems to have been a success 🙂
