you are NOT invisible

SunburstMore momo, y’all. This 24-minute sit-down may be his most powerful video yet. In it, he talks with Joanne, the woman in crisis who wrote to him (we read that letter in the last video), and helps her understand how she’s been essentially oppressing herself. Because she’s a caring, helping person, she makes herself transparent rather than risk blocking anyone else’s light.

Her personal circumstances are these: her husband died of a long illness, leaving her desperately in debt because of his gambling. She has health issues of her own. Her best friend and lifelong support has just died as well, and suddenly she’s additionally facing a personal financial crisis: she has no choice but to come up with $500, immediately.

Video over the jump. Bring your Kleenex; there’s just something deeply freeing about watching a mohawked music producer and a Quebec housewife reach catharsis on a couple of pink Ikea love seats.
