For most of the month, I’ve been watching this series of videos called Letters to July. In 2013, Emily (or emilieofnewgloom on YouTube) started this project, where she and a bunch of her YouTube friends make letters to July each day of the month. She did it again this year, and I loved watching a letter each day. Most of them are quite thoughtful and moving. Most are also just about a minute each.
The videos address July, as though it were an entity you could speak to, which reminded me very much of Shane Jones’ Lightboxes‘ February. Anyway, I made my own letter to July:
Anyway, it’s a great project. I really love how short the videos are, but how they say a lot. If you wanted to see them, here’s the playlist for the 2013 letters (about 35 minutes):
And, here’s the playlist for the 2014 letters (about 37 minutes):
You can also just choose to watch a couple, but I can’t really pick a favorite as they are all pretty special in their own way.
