Four months ago, Hernán and I became parents to a little boy that we named Remy. To be honest, without a certain YouTube video, we would not have gotten through the first month of his life! That video is “Vacuum Cleaner Sound and Video 3 Hours” … and it’s, well, exactly what you would imagine. Someone actually set up a camera and recorded themselves vacuuming for three entire hours. To this day, that video pulls Remy out of even the most passionate of tantrums. There’s something about it that calms him down!
On that note, the other day, a mother emailed me about her young son. She revealed to me that she plays my calligraphy videos to calm him down! I cannot help but commiserate … after all, we’d be lost without our beloved “Vacuum Cleaner Sound and Video 3 Hours”. In the spirit of adding to the zen of YouTube, this week’s TPK video shows simple, calming calligraphy.
TPK’s “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” Calligraphy Video
I normally add some speed to my calligraphy videos, just so they move a bit faster. I didn’t do that with this one for a couple of reasons. First of all, I want you to see how long calligraphy takes to write! Learners often think that their lack of speed means lack of experience, but that’s simply not the case. Secondly, if you have a “Remy” (or you need to calm down yourself), I want this video to be relaxing. I’m not sure that it will be my own child’s favorite hit — he appears to be more interested in cleaning products than calligraphy, after all — but I hope that you will enjoy it the best way for you in your home!
I’ll be back to posting a tutorial on YouTube next week! In the meantime, enjoy “Eine kleine Nachtmusik Calligraphy” … and your weekend!
