Capture Tomorrow - Memories
The man in the video is simply taking his dog to the park to get some exercise, but there’s more to the story than meets the eye. We don’t know what the man’s background is and we don’t know who he is, we just know that no matter what he does in his day and no matter what attitude he has that day, whether good or bad, he still takes the time to take care of the one thing that constantly shows him love and appreciation. That’s something that we all seem to forget in this crazy world we live in. We all seem to focus so much on what we want and how we get it and we seem to forget the simple things. Technology is taking us places that we would have never dreamed of 20 years ago, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important. Even something as simple as taking out your dog. It is speculated that dogs dream about their owners. Of course, that isn’t known for sure, but if it is true, can you imagine the kind of memories that this dog has with its owner? The memories of growing up and learning how to understand the owner, playing with toys and even going to the park to go walk around for a while. These are things we as humans have the ability to understand and communicate with each other, but what if our pets hold the same memories but aren’t able to tell us phrases like, “Hey, remember when…?”. We know they’re able to show fear, excitement, and sadness, so who’s to say they aren’t capable of reliving memories in the same way that humans do? This is something most of us don't think about because we are too busy living in the world. As you’re viewing this video, keep in mind the possibility that the dog, who is lovingly named Debo, is capable of enjoying and reliving this moment in time. If we are able to slow down in our daily life and realize that things aren’t always what they seem, we can truly appreciate what we have today and be able to capture tomorrow in a better way.
