via Daily Prompt: Avid
Along time ago in a far away reality a random access editing tool was born out of the fear and squalor of linear methods of stacking picture and sound bits in a fungible predestined order. A system built on Apple’s upstart architecture was foisted upon a world of trim bins, dirty dupes, and countless open re-edits of arcane EDL list management disciples. The decidedly nonlinear AVID Media Composer was born into a world full of nattering nabobs of negativity.

Here is a connection to a life long friend of mine. I often re-post his blog entries on WordPress because I want to share his words and photographs with the good people here. While I value the connections the Internets have brought me, none have the same intrinsic value of a grade school chum carried over from last century into this one. Even when our life paths varied and geographically diverged; when by all outward appearances the line was disconnected, this connection has lasted. On a foundation that consists of growing up, or pretending to, in the same city neighborhood with common friends and interests that reaches deep into the terra firma of life. Revitalized over the last decade upon regained geosynchronous proximity, I can confidently affirm this to be a rich, satisfying, and positive connection for my life and times.
Enjoy as I have:
