This video f****g breaks my heart right now.
This video shows something that is very real for millions of worldians.
I just visited my grandma, a love of my life…in a nursing home, after a fall that broke her hip, …and this is real. The world on the right half of this video is lacking in sunshine, fresh air, healthy real yummy food. It’s not lacking in love—my aunt has been there for my grandma—but it’s lacking in life, in fun, in memories made.
It’s really no life: the tv’s set to random channels, you just want to stay in bed, you can’t read, you don’t want to eat the “food,” the people are generally kind but busy and overwhelmed, often.
And the world on the left: it starts now. Eat food, not too much, mostly plants. Bicycle. Shovel the walk of a neighbor–it’s free exercise. Go to that yoga class, and remember how to sit up with good posture without trying.
