Wondering what happened to the bright and happy kid in the video.  Almost brings me to tears.  I think about it because I have two kids who are so full of life and promise, like the one in the video, and I’m scared that the weight of life might in one way or another take a toll on that basic joy, energy and soul; as it clearly did to Jackson despite his climb to the top of the world in terms of success at what he clearly loved.

Anyway, it’s Friday and my kids are happy as clams in the moment.  Life is a series of moments.  Enjoying them while they last.
