Sentimental Sunday

Chris Muir on the set of his short film "Bye"
Watch it here
It's easy to get sentimental with a garden full of gorgeous
flowers and the temperature falling way too rapidly.
Out in Alberta they had snow today! But to write my
blog tonight, I decided to look back on events that
happened on this day.

On this day n 2011 my son Christopher was directing
what I believe was one of his first films Bye.  Steven
and I were in the studio, and I had a very
minor role in the short film.  It was an exciting day, and
I was so proud of Christopher, who has gone on to be a
pro photographer, and now a Director for music videos,
ads and films.

Looking back and seeing this joyous photo of him on
the set, I felt so happy at the memory, and so proud
of where he's taken his incredible talent.

Have an enjoying your present moments and memories day.

Thank you so much Flora,

Hi NIcki,

Thank you so much. I did too. I hadn't watched it for a long time because he
is constantly working on new stuff that I watch with great delight. This
one is a treat.

Love your work so much! Hope you get out to Toronto sometime soon.

HI Verna,

I'm so glad you like it. I do too. As a person who teaches writing, I teach about the
power of the word. And tone. I just love this film for how nuanced and funny and
true it is.

Hi Liza,

Yes Christopher continues to have fun with film. It is wonderful. Your family is
doing well too. And that is great. Miss you.
