A future father’s & current uncle’s promise to keep

At this point in my life, I am both excited and dreadful to the idea of becoming a parent. I see it as the conclusion of one’s purpose in life. All the learning we acquired (and missed), with all the chiseling & sanding we went through, leads to this point when we will eventually chisel and sand the life of another and of which is from our own. Failing on this is one the few greatest fears I’ve been keeping.

I’ve been given a preview or a taste-test of how it would be when my dear nephew arrived. So since being an uncle (given the loopy state of my episodic romance) ┬áis the nearest to my being a father I am making this promise to our dear Lucas hoping one day when he reaches a point of doubting our solemn love, he will be consolingly reminded.

Promise to my children

As true as love could get

I’m a such a sucker for wedding videos. And i’m such a big fan of Jason Magbanua. I follow each new video that he posts on his site. I devour each; dissecting its technicalities, aesthetics, techniques and methods. Often times, I missed out on the couples. After all, that’s the one thing common to all of the videos – two individuals in-love.

Until this video.

The approach was straightforward. Nothing much on flare or fancies (well, except for the 3D view of the rings). The magic and uniqueness of this video is with the couple themselves. No need to exaggerate or emphasize anything. Unique just as they are.

Indeed, as true as love could get.
