My Starring Role

One of my gratitude posts mentioned getting to make a video with my brother and sister over Thanksgiving Break. If you know me, you know I'm not much of a performer. My brother and sister have always held those types of roles in our family. It was fun to be a little out of character and do this with them.

The video was based on a poem, Selecting a Reader, by Ted Kooser

First, I would have her be beautiful,
and walking carefully up on my poetry
at the loneliest moment of an afternoon,
her hair still damp at the neck
from washing it. She should be wearing
a raincoat, an old one, dirty
from not having money enough for the cleaners.
She will take out her glasses, and there
in the bookstore, she will thumb
over my poems, then put the book back
up on its shelf. She will say to herself,
"For that kind of money, I can get
my raincoat cleaned." And she will.

Please enjoy the final product :)
