I'm very proud to present today a brand-new, short film made by my oldest daughter, Amanda Blue Gotera. Below are a couple of screencaps from it. The film was inspired by former U.S. Poet Laureate Ted Kooser's poem "A Jar of Buttons," from his poetry collection Delights and Shadows, which won the Pulitzer Prize in 2005.
The young woman who appears in the film sewing a button onto her sweater is my next oldest daughter, Amelia Blue Gotera. As you might imagine, my buttons (forgive the pun) are fit to burst.
If you've got five minutes, please watch and enjoy "Sea of Mending." Then, won't you come back here and write a comment below? Both Amanda and I would love to know your thoughts about the film.
Thanks so much. Ingat
