I’ve always loved A-Ha’s song 🎶 “Take On Me” from the nostalgic 80’s. This is a quick flight using my DJI’s FPV Drone. Choreography and video edits were inspired to pay tribute to such an amazing song.
Do you ever get a spark ⚡️ of an idea and then that spark heats up and takes on a life of it’s own? I am sure out in the blogger community, many bloggers and creatives of all types can relate to this concept. It’s the feeling of creating something from little to nothing at all.
The anniversary of Chris Cornell’s passing is coming soon this May 18th. It was a date that lays heavy on my heart for such a young and talented tortured soul, whose unique voice and vocal range could penetrate the deepest of emotions.
We had quite a snow storm last week here in Michigan. This is something Michiganders easily become numb to over the years. When spring arrives, it can be 80 degrees Fahrenheit one day and below zero the next. We never know what jacket to bring to the party.
I grabbed my camera and took a few snaps of the ice forming on the flowers and trees blooming in my yard.
Reflecting on the photos helped inspire this short artistic film. I was drawn to a variety of feelings and ideas related to transformation, human collective consciousness, life, death, rebirth, and the universal relationships between humans, nature, climate change, and technology.

This Independence Weekend!
After working a full day, my wife and I decided to take a car ride to our local county park. Here in Michigan, with our current Covid-19 stay at home order, we are allowed to spend time in local parks as long as people maintain our set social distancing guidelines.
I love and miss my wife! With both of our jobs, working as first responders of one type or another with the Covid-19 crisis, our schedules changed so we don’t have a single day off together anymore. This month will mark almost 25 years of friendship. Times like this really make you dig deep inside, but it is the love you share with a special someone that makes it all worth something! Take care everyone 🐼✌️🤙
Video and photo shoot from a local cemetery.
As a child, my brother and I were fascinated by this graveyard. It was built in the 1800s and is a Catholic Jesuit Cemetery. A few of the graves carry the remains of Civil War soldiers. The crypt is located on a hill and houses a famous Jesuit priest buried beneath the floor.
I was fascinated when I flew over the crypt and saw the unusual letters "AMDG".
One of my smart historical colleagues let me know that the markings represented a famous Latin Jesuit Saying:
Ad Majored Dei Gloria: "For the Greater Glory of God"
May everyone rest in piece 🐼
