It was inevitable: I've discovered YouTube. I won't blame enyasi entirely, but if you get tired of my new video addiction, you can blame her on my behalf.
In this Super8 clip I'm five. My younger brother is the first one on the screen; my older sister is spazing out around the edges of the frame.
We're on a beach somewhere in the Bay Area in the early 70s -- we lived in Sonoma at the time.
Shortly after this clip was taken my mother disappeared from my life for awhile -- for about 7 years, actually. We never really got back on track after that.
I don't have a lot of memories of her when I was younger, so this film clip startled me when she shared it with me. That's her behind the camera. Just looking at her daughter, and loving her.
