beanie – October 9, 2019
Having not spoken to my friend properly in years, I saw on Facebook that she is having a tough time with her circulation condition, POTS, and is currently having to rest up on her living room floor. I know for myself I hate having to take time off and sit around doing nothing when I'm sick - I can't imagine how hard it must be for people with this condition and other illnesses where it's hard to walk or even sit upright! I decided to reconnect with my friend in the hopes of making her smile, and made a short video in the beautiful and sunny Stanley Park, showing the trees and peaceful environment. It was a little embarrassing for me, I don't really do the whole 'selfie' thing, but I thought she would appreciate the video, so I sent it anyway. She responded that it felt like she had gone outdoors from watching the video! It is always great to receive unexpected gifts and gestures from old friends and relatives.
