YouTube Channel – For Better or for Worse
Sometimes, I think that people make YouTube videos because they like the sound of their own voices. But, I assure you, that’s not the case with me. I seriously DISLIKE the sound of my own voice! My voice is preferred through writing not speaking. However, I believe that I should try to reach as many people as I can and I know that there are some people who would rather watch a video than read a 1000 word essay. So…
Last month (April) I made and published a short video reading a poem about myself and I called the post about it Brave. I really did feel brave and, yes, a little foolish. And, yet… I went and made another one! This one is longer, longer than I intended, and I thought about redoing it to make it shorter and better. But, then I thought that one of the advantages of speaking versus writing is that I don’t have to be so particular with my grammar, word choices, sentence structures, etc.. Therefore, I simply published it as is. Perhaps as a sign that video production is not for me, I accidentally published the post with the video “What’s Wrong with Her” early, last Sunday, (with an odd predate of the 18th) instead of on Thursday, my usual posting day.
So, here I am, on my regular posting day, with this little introduction to my YouTube channel. My plan is to make and post a video every month or so, weather permitting. 🙂 They will mostly be about my disability and disease and, hopefully, under five minutes in length. I still do feel both brave and foolish doing this, but, here I am… On this Feast of the Ascension, reminded that Christ is always with us, I hope that I am doing God’s will…

Although crippled by disease, I'm fully alive in love. I write about the terrible beauty and sacred wonder of life, while living with physical disability and severe dependency. A revert to the Catholic faith through atheism, I'm not afraid to ask life's big questions. I explore what it means to be fully human through my weekly blog and have written a book: It's Good to Be Here, published by Sophia Institute Press.
Hi. I’m really looking forward to seeing you on Youtube again! God bless you. 🙂
