I Dropped a Burrito at Dream Lake

Carrying a burrito at Dream Lake near the top of the Rocky Mountains is tricky. You’re up at around 10,000 feet. The air is thin, the burrito is thick. The glare of the sun is distracting and that squirrely little burrito is just itching to squirm out of your hands and run off into the wilderness to live wild and free like all the other burritos. So I dropped mine. But I picked it right back up and ate it. And then I picked up my camera and took these pictures. Then I took a plane back East and made this video late at night.
Here it is.

A Salute to Teachers Red Carpet Event

Every year for the past 26 years Cox Communications has celebrated the teachers of California with an event called “A Salute to Teachers”.  For 25 years I had nothing to do with, sitting unaware of the saluting in my house in Rhode Island.  This year, however, I was asked to fly to San Diego to not only salute teachers but film them as well.  And salute and film them I did.

This first video was shot outside of The Balboa Theater in the new public park that was in the last stages of construction as of September 2016.  It is the red carpet reception and, aside from an unfilmed wine spilling, the event went off without a hitch.
