Here is another example of memory keeping using video:



This one was made by my 17 year old son, Blake.


A few weeks ago I issued a Small Story Manifesto on my website, challenging folks to make miniature story-based videos (like tiny documentaries), under two minutes long.


Anyway, Blake read the guidelines and decided to make a video himself. This video was his first attempt, and I think it's pretty good.

Well done Blake! Following in your dad's footsteps of videography. I want to watch this video several times because the first time I watched I kept getting distracted by the warm feelings of a family going out together for fun and it can be spontaneous and simple. My husband and daughter and I do this once a year every December and we call it our "warm fuzzy day" and we go window shopping or checking out Christmas decorations etc. We try to do other days too where we catch a baseball game perhaps and then sightsee or dinner... Anyway, I also was distracted by the whole geocaching idea which intrigues me. And then it was looking at the surroundings because Arizona is one of my favourite states to visit.
All in all a great video to watch - thank you Blake for making it and thanks Izzy for sharing - what a lovely family you have!

That is so great! Blake is real natural, for sure! We used to geocache. Haven't in a long time, but this makes me want to do it again!

Way to go Blake! You have your dad's genes! Good choice to move forward in this direction.
