There's something so incredibly peaceful about simple, old-fashioned ways of doing things. This video of making homemade pesto (sans food processor or any other electronic kitchen equipment) is a great example of that. I love how the videographer just focused on her hands the whole time - emphasizing the grace, gentleness, and intentionality of her movements. Listening to the music and watching the movement of her hands was stress-relieving enough for me -- mirroring my own tendencies to keep my hands busy when I'm nervous or anxious.
