One of the projects that Owen and I have been doing is trading video letters online with a dear friend of ours. We thought the most recent video might be of interest to all of you readers as well, as it tells about 3 October, a big holiday here in Leiden, and our experiences this year. It contains footage of children zipped into inflatable balls and squirming around in a swimming pool, in case you're needing some encouragement to press the play button.
In case you loved this video and want to see all of them there's not a proper playlist set up (one where you can just watch them all without effort) but if you search YouTube for "5014 Miles" we should be the first half dozen or so to pop up.
Clara and Owen
Grown-ups like numbers. When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: "What does his voice sound like?" "What games does he like best?" "Does he collect butterflies?". They ask: "How old is he?" "How many brothers does he have?" "How much does he weigh?" "How much money does his father make?" Only then do they think they know him. ---Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Rosalind (the Puggle, whom I think everyone in Staunton between 2011 and 2013 met, but perhaps not?) and I have watched all of the videos and greatly enjoyed them. She is especially interested in Katy's voice and kept tilting her head, looking from me to the laptop and back again.ReplyDelete
Forgive me, Meg, but I'm having trouble recognizing you from your little picture. We seem to know each other, though-- will you enlighten me? I'm so glad you're enjoying the blog. :)ReplyDelete
