I'm a summertime person. I like it hot. I appreciate beauty in whatever form it comes in, and winter has that in spades, but winter is also very depressing with its short days, dark gray skies, layers of clothing, and general confinement to warm buildings. I respect winter though. It's dangerous and holy. Even magical. So I wanted to capture some of that feeling before this winter is gone. I wrote this piece a couple months or so ago, and filmed what I had hoped was the last snowfall of the year at my house. I shot it on Brian Sullivan's, my friend, and now neighbor's, Sony VX 1000 that I've been borrowing (I really need to give that back, and his leaf blower). Luckily it was handy as the snow started to come down. I was afraid I'd missed the last snowfall this year... then it snowed twice after that. Has it been a long winter for anyone else?
That little kid you see at the window is my son Nigel.
