Before It’s Too Late

Orchid and Lily

I had this thought this past Mother’s Day, of how every­one who still have a moth­er should make a video of his/her moth­er at her hap­pi­est, talk­ing and laugh­ing, telling you she loves you. I wish I’d had a video cam­era way back when my moth­er was healthy, happy(ish) and alive so I could make a video of her because now I’d do any­thing to hear her voice again, to hear her laugh­ter, her singing, her call­ing me “Tomblok” (her pet name for me). But alas, my moth­er passed away just before the dig­i­tal rev­o­lu­tion.

Of course you can do the same to any of your loved ones. Even pets. Dig­i­tal cam­eras and many cell­phones come with a video fea­ture these days. Your video cam­era is lack­ing audio fea­ture? Bor­row the one with audio from one of your friends! There is no excuse. This may sound like an utter­ly mor­bid idea now but trust me, some­day you’ll be glad you did.
