growing butterflies

As I sit at the computer and do production work (which is often), it’s easy to forget the amazing opportunities, and even more amazing people I have met, because of what I do. I’ve been behind the scenes of ballets, on the streets of parades getting candy thrown on top of me, and in the middle of muddy farm fields.

Well, tomorrow another very cool experience is about to happen and the butterflies in my stomach are starting to grow bigger. I’ll be part of a photographic team for the grand opening of the Center for Investigating Healthy Minds and the visit of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. As an assistant to my good friends, Mike and Heather Krakora, I’ll be at various locations during the event capturing the little details. The significance of this event is starting to sink in and I am equally nervous and excited!
