With all my complaining the other day about not having written anything substantial here for a few weeks, I remembered that I haven’t even properly shared a heap of the videos that I’ve been making lately.
Creating videos is fast becoming my real passion. When I look back now through my younger years, I remember being so fascinated with it, but it seeming hugely out of reach. I remember when I was 13 we drove down to Sydney and Canberra. While we were in Canberra we visited a museum that had a brilliant interactive display with video, sculpture, art. It was a great art installation! That really sat with me, but I didn’t have the skills at the time to do anything like it, and I didn’t know how to go about acquiring them.
Even just a few years ago when I was working on my Masters in Cross-Disciplinary Art & Design with COFA at the University of New South Wales (Gee, that’s a mouth full!!), I didn’t even THINK of including video as part of my major art installation. What regret! It’s hard to believe that it was only 3 years ago I was studying, and that this wasn’t even on my radar then. The only equipment I had then that could record on was my iPhone 3! Ha!
Honestly, filming little stories like this one I’m about to show you has opened up a huge world of passion and creativity for me. It’s like something that I was always destined to do, and finally I have opened up the skills and equipment I need to do it. The sky is the limit now! Especially with my husband’s unwavering (and quite abundant) support for what I do. He is my biggest fan, no doubt about it.
Now let me tell you briefly about our Hanukkah celebrations last year. I had my thyroid surgery the day before Hanukkah I think, so I was quite sore and obviously a bit under the weather for nearly the whole of Hanukkah. Therefore it didn’t go the same as other years, but still, I think we pulled off a really beautiful week remembering the miracles God performed all those many, many years ago, and the ones he is still doing now! Yeshua (Jesus) kept Hanukkah (obviously – because he was a Jew), and so we follow in his footsteps and celebrate it also. He (the Messiah) is the light of the world!
“Yeshua spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light which gives life.” – John 8:12
