I love children precisely because they are entirely authentic. If this video doesn’t remind you of the magic of Christmas and children, then you are one lost soul mi amigo!
Around last Christmas, our daughter had fallen in love with Blues Clues. So I decided to surprise her with a simple “Best Of” Blues Clues DVD – an $8 gift. I never expected to get this enormous reaction from her.
It is moments like these, that remind me what experiencing true authentic human moments can do for the heart of man. They inspire, uplift, encourage, create warmth, and remind us of the wonder of living on this earth, even with all its challenges.
This moment also reminds me of what great acting can be. As a director, I love the idea of creating circumstances wherein characters truly become authentic within a scene, much like my daughter was on this beautiful Christmas morning. Where pretense dissolves away, and their characters truest emotive responses surface organically, without force, or script for that matter.
So who would of thought that Blues Clues was the source of so much authenticity? Hmm, thanks Steve.
