A video I watched inspired me to hit the record button and share these thoughts. But this is no longer a direct VR to that video (and in fact this video might have taken on a more melancholic tone than intended).
Instead of being a direct VR to the video inspiring this sharing, I will be commenting on what my own experiences have been like.
Here are some of my thoughts 7 years in.
This video is unlisted, which means it won’t appear on my YouTube channel or on the public YouTube platform. I will be experimenting with moving away from that platform and posting more unlisted videos here on the personal website.

Thank you for sharing this insight, Benebell. I’m not an author, but a voracious reader. You remind me to be aware of how I also might put authors in narrow framework that doesn’t take into account the whole person.
A blessed Solstice to you,
You have inspired me to express to you how much I value you and your content. I might comment on your blog once a year…maybe…but I do value your opinons and insights. That’s why I bring your posts in through RSS..shhh, don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret) I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this… (I say that as a former eBay PowerSeller… if they even have such a thing anymore, it’s been a while). It’s alot of work. Recently I expressed a once in a year opinion on something you had posted about, in which I expressed my utter frustration with the modern world and it’s technology. You’ve brought to my attention that I might not have made that exactly clear (one of my numerous major faults). I’ll have to go back and try to find exaclty what I said, but it occurs to me that it could easily have been taken perosnally as I recall you being enthusiastic about the AI…Let’s call it commenters remorse…lol Even though i have no idea if you took it that way or not… If so i would like to apologize for any misunderstanding. It was simply your tpoic reminded me of something I am not happy about with the modern world. Who knows, you might post something down the road that will render me not so pessimistic? That would be a great thing methinks! So, thank you. And Merry Yule!

Wow – So I am finally catching up with your posts… and this one I will have to chew on for a while. I am in the later stages of writing a book, and EVERYONE keeps advising me it’s time to create my brand… and I keep resisting. And I just realized after watching this that what scares me is being pigeon-holed into that two dimensional character of yourself. And maybe I’m resisting because I had a career before embarking on this adventure… and that’s what happened (albeit on a MUCH smaller scale). I think I will need to eventually decide what I am going to care about, and what I am going to have to trust I won’t care about….
Thanks for this, Benebell! I appreciate what came out, even if it felt like a tangent-ramble when you reflected on its origin.
