Today was Veterans day in the US.
My kids had today off from school and the wife had to work so I made the time to take my boys for a little walk about in downtown Santa Barbara.
We had a nice breakfast out together, then we drove down to Paseo Nuevo, browsed the high end shops and wandered about the pedestrian mall that makes up our downtown.
Along the way a Marine in uniform came walking alone toward us. I looked at this young hispanic man in uniform, minding his own business. I caught his eye as he came up to us. I quietly said, "Thank you".
He looked like he wasn't sure what I meant. Then he looked me in the eye, smiled and said, "Thank YOU sir." and went on his way.
With so much to regret about war and politics the dead and the wounded and the lingering doubt that rests on all of us, I hope this simple act made a difference to one young Marine. I know it made a difference to me.
The Production Room was founded in 1995 as one of the first full time digital commercial recording facilties on the central coast of California. We started with 4 stereo tracks, 16 mb of ram and a 250 mb hard drive. A lot has happened since then. Today we're focusing on ways to serve clients who are creating web based media content. This includes strategic planning to integrate the benefits of traditional media, web design and IT solutions into new programs produced especially for on-line consumers. Join in the conversation. Throw rocks at glass houses. Share your vision of the future. This is the most progressive time in the media arts since Johannes Gutenburg invented movable type!
