I recently wrote a song titled "These Ornaments" and Christine Lavin included it in her "Just One Angel v2.0" seasonal song compilation project for 2013. She thought "These Ornaments" would be strong video material and encouraged me to make one. We both collected images of favorite ornaments from people and I included many from our family including 8mm movie footage from my childhood in the 1960s. My Mom, siblings, nephews and nieces, wife, son and many others joined in to share images. This was a powerful project for me as our dad died this past June and there is a lot of him in here. I loved making this "film." It is filled with love and remembrance, celebration and joy, with a large cast of people I care deeply about and some brand new friends who brought their own warmth and humanity to the mix. I hope it brings some measure of good things to others as well.
