Intense Focus…and it’s been too long

Last week I had the opportunity to visit a Grizzlies hockey game in the Maverick Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. My daughter’s school choir was singing the National Anthem and so of course I took my camera, an extra kid and a strong stomach for some bad concession food.

It’s always fun seeing the kids work hard to prepare for something and then enjoy the process of the event. The actual performance and being out on the ice lasts only a few minutes, but the bus ride and time with friends all add to the experience. When it’s all done we enjoy a hockey game – something I’ve only done a handful of times in my life. And of course, with camera in hand. The atmosphere is pretty fun, charged with the anticipation of big hits and potential to see a fight taboo everywhere but on the ice.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been posting to this blog. Partially out of sheer laziness mixed in with some ongoing procrastination, but also wondering the value of whether it gets red by anyone but me. Regardless I think I’ll be making an effort to post again with some regularity and perhaps a little more of a personal tone as I just share whatever I’ve been working on and what’s on my mind. Hope a few of you will enjoy the musings and associated photos.

With that in mind, here are a few photos and a video of the night.
