Walk in the Park
I come to you with something new, yet again!
This is the first time in Hello Universe's history that I have tried to turn a poem into a short live-action video.
I invite you to take a short walk in the park with me, and hope you enjoy it!
Poem starts in 3… 2… 1!

Here's the poem for those who can't watch the video just yet:
I looked at the world on my walk to the park. The sun was just setting, soon it would be dark. 🌇🌆 The nature around me, the tallest of trees. The birds and the branches, wherever you see. 🌳🦅🌳 So random, disjointed, and yet at its best. It made me feel welcome like I was its guest. 👋👋 The people around me, the women and men, the kids playing games as they laughed and they ran. ☺☺ I walked and I thought of the lives of those folks. Their hopes and their dreams, and their stories and jokes. 👪🍕🎈 I looked at them all as I walked through the trees. And wondered if they thought the same about me. 😇😇
That's it! Thanks for reading Hello Universe this week.
I wrote this poem back in late 2020. Since then, I have gone on a lot of walks, and have enjoyed observing nature as well as the people around me. Capturing it on video seemed like a natural next step.
Do let me know your thoughts on this new format. I am new to filming things and putting them online, so your feedback and encouragement will be much appreciated. 😇
Also, a special thanks to my friend who captured the shots of me walking. I felt super conscious about it during the shoot, but the results are really nice. I genuinely dig the vibe of this video, I hope you do too!

Watch The Death of Stalin: Add this to your weekend watchlist. Based on historical events, full of great satire and amazing acting, it’s the best movie I have watched in 2022 so far. Indians can watch it on Prime video. 📺
