Good morning & happy holidays from Huntington Beach everyone! I woke up this morning thinking OMG, it’s already December 1st & Christmas is just a shortbread cookie over 3 weeks away. The first thing that came to mind is where in the world did the year go? Wholly Nachos & Newcastles! With all the fantastic people I’ve had the honour of working with, the new friends I’ve made, and all the blessings that have given to me – it’s been an absolutely amazing year!
Then… I sit down at my computer to share today’s holiday festive tunes that are buzzing around in the Agile mind of David Esquire. But, instead what I saw was all the people around the world with far less than what me, you & probably everyone in our lives have been blessed with.
That reminded me of a couple of things that I’ve done recently. I’ve donated my time for charity on several occasions, handed out a few $20 bills to people on the street (some holding up a sign and some that looked like they needed a hand up) and done my best to help build up the industry that I love.
But sometimes I think that the butterfly effect needs more butterflies.
So I’m kicking off this month’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week with Band Aid’s “Do They Know It’s Christmas.” I really think that this is one of the biggest times in the planet’s history that great creative minds came together to do their best to make a difference in this world.
There’s too much to share about the project, so please click through the Band Aid link above & you’ll see how many amazing people helped in the project.
But before you check out this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Orange County Wedding Photographer that really wants to help make a positive difference in this world, feel free to contact me anytime.
So without further ado, I give you the original music video Band Aid and the live performance in England in “Do They Know It’s Christmas.” So please take 4 minutes to sit back with your favourite holiday beverage during your day, enjoy the video, count your blessings and think of at least one way that you can help make someone else’s Christmas better. THEN! I ask you to please Tweet it, Facebook it, Blog about it, Comment on today’s posting, but by all means – help spread the word that you’ve helped contribute in one way or another to making a positive difference in this world. Remember…. more butterflies!
For some, it’s the 11th hour of their human spirit & their clock is ticking down.
PS, I just couldn’t help myself & added the 12″ extended dance mix that you can listen to as well. I love the spoken word in the song. It really adds to it – cheers!
