There’s so much I wish I knew about my parents. Now that I am old enough to understand them as people rather than as “mom” and “dad”, it would be so nice to hear what they thought about as I grew up.
Through a strange series of events, I happen to have one of those small digital video recorders that I don’t really need. I gave it to my wife, who didn’t use it. At one point it hit on me. Podcasting. Not just any podcasting, podcasting to my family.
The camera is now at work. As I drive to work I sometimes hit on things I wish I could tell the future. Sometimes I find a quiet place, close the door, turn on the camera and talk. I say the things now that I may not remember later. Like how you can take as many pictures as you want, but it will never remind you of the feeling of a little hand in yours as you walk to school.
Sure, maybe the files will get lost, just like the negatives from the pictures my parents and grandparents took. Maybe. But, perhaps someday my family can see what I thought (and how I looked!) way back in 2011.
