I woke up on this particular November Wednesday having more work to do than I’d like. I couldn’t begin to imagine how I was going to do everything ahead of me, so apparently, my brain shut down and I began to procrastinate. As I was staring at my miniaturized Samsung Netbook, I saw the tiny dot that was the lens for the video camera. I opened the program and began to play. I wanted to see all the things it could do. I started making convoluted, misshapen faces with the video effects. It was entirely too much fun.
When I was done filming the snippets of silliness, I compiled them into my Windows Movie Maker, added titles and credits, and I had a movie. As I completed my film, I realized that all I really needed to do that morning was play. Sometimes, play is all there is to do; at least, for one’s soul. Enjoy the fruits of my labor.
