One Big Happy Family
BY ROBBY BROWN, TEMPE, AZ, USA - We have a little more than a month left until we go and I still feel like I have a ton of things to do before I will be ready. On the top of the list is spending as much time with my family here in Arizona and the ones in New Mexico. Since I work mostly at nights when everybody else is off, it's a little hard to find time. Unfortunately, I've had to miss the last two meetings and I feel bummed that I've been missing out on so much important info. And also the group picture.As you can see I stuck myself in using Photoshop. I'm starting to get restless. I'm glad that there's still time to prepare and improve our skills and knowledge of film, however I am really anxious to do this.
I have such a strong feeling that my life will change with this trip and it feels like it's going to be such a big step in my life. I feel like I'm waiting for a giant tidal wave to hit. When I get back from Africa, my second oldest brother, Ryan, and his family (wife - Socilt, and beautiful daughter - Bella) will be relocated within the company to a very exotic place. It's one thing to be so far away from my family, some of whom I won't see again for a year or two, but it's another thing knowing that I will come out of this with such a strong bond between the crew and the Zambian people. Hopefully my newly aquired film family will help fill that void. Here we go!
EDITOR'S NOTE: The night the crew photo was taken, Robby had to work. Fortunately, he took computer digital editing classes so he was able to "join" the crew electronically.
