My new "video essay" concept is up and running!

For a long time, I've wanted to start creating an on-going series of short video essays and run them up the YouTube flagpole and see what viewers think about them. The first one is live on YouTube. I plan to stay non-political with these and the subjects will deal with helpful quotations, thoughts and ideas from great writers and other artists. 

Why would I do this? I have always loved "sharing." When I've read something, saw an exceptional movie, listened to a fantastic song, or viewed a well composed photograph or a painting that somehow touched me, I've always wanted to tell the world about it. My presentations to arts and library groups and to senior center audiences on the "Golden Age of Radio" or the "Early History of Rock-n-Roll" have always been deeply satisfying to me. Seeing folks light-up with understanding of what I'm trying to tell them is a personal joy. Scott Bourne, host and producer of the website and podcast, PictureMethods.com inspired me to get off my duff and do this video project.

I  have two more of these little productions in the works. Check the first one out (runs 3 minutes) entitled How Decisions Are Made by clicking here. By the way, if you like it, give me a thumbs up and hit that "subscribe" link. Thanks. - LG
