I’ve been on an interesting Journey this year… one of discovery, awakening and clarity. The farther along this journey I go, the more I come to realize two important things. 1) Life should be about others and not me, and 2) I love to tell other people’s story through video. Learning how to do these things is and always will be something I strive to do better.
This weekend I had the joy of watching the son of my good friend Brian experience his first baseball game at Wrigley Field in Chicago. Sure going to any baseball game can be fun, but to watch Carter’s excitement… his anticipation and ultimately his joy in this first-time experience was nothing short of amazing for me. Maybe it was only a simple baseball game, but to him (and for me) it was so much more than that.
The 3 of us enjoyed the game from the center field bleachers of Wrigley. It was in many ways a perfect night. The seats were perfect, the weather was impeccable, and the fans around us were a perfect mix of fun without being obnoxious ; ). Carter’s favorite player even hit a home run!
Now I’m not a cubs fan, nor to do I dislike the cubs. I’m completely indifferent in fact. Some might see this video, see that it involves the Cubs and Love it… or Hate it. I simply ask that when you watch it, that you look past any deep feelings you may have, and see past that into Carter’s story. It’s a fun one to watch, and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I had fun experiencing, filming and editing it. : )

It was magical, as many moments in life are. And I hope that I can continue to do this. I’ve come to find, this is who I am… a story teller, a film maker… of others. Carter, Brian and to all of your family I thank you for allowing me to share this memorable part of your lives with you. : )
