California Here I Come
Last week we received the “go ahead” from the committee to pursue our treatment for a video project for the conference finance team. Using trees as the metaphor, and the redwoods in particular, we are going to show how working together (planting trees) can make something grow and last beyond our own lifetimes.
We are also going to tell the story of the redwoods which, from what I’ve read, have fairly shallow roots but they are able to grow so big and tall because the root system is interconnected, gathering nourishment from the entire forest and gaining stability because they are woven together.
So, in just over a month I get to fly out to San Francisco and drive north along the coast (at sunset as it turns out) to the Redwood National Park for a couple of days of taking pictures and gathering footage for this project. I can’t wait!
