I love media as my grandmother loved me!

Today Youtube recommended me a one and a half minute long video of Alzheimers mother remembering her daughter. I clicked and cried, spent an hour flipping through my phone gallery, trying to recollect and revibe my memories with my grandmother.

Love involves reminiscing the past, living in the present, and envisioning the future. With media, I think – think about how my grandmother and I laughed at the ridiculously huge orange we found at a market when I was 13, about the bittersweet feelings I have right now as I am writing this, and what my tomorrow could have looked like if my grandmother were still here with me.

I love media as my grandmother loved me.
