Passage of Migrants

Shadows passing across the moon, a soft beating of unseen wings in the dark, distant cries blown back by the wind, a line of geese flying high… these are some of the familiar fragments that are part of the mystery of migration. Waterfowl, shorebirds and cranes are linked by a love of water. Since the Ice Age retreated, arctic nesting birds have travelled immense distances every fall to overwinter and every spring to return. Their passage marks the seasons, and is a mystery that still fascinates man.

Witness the Passage of Migrants, a Karvonen Films special.

The Last Lecture

On September 18, 2007, computer science professor Randy Pausch stepped in front of an audience of 400 people at Carnegie Mellon University to deliver a last lecture called “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams.” With slides of his CT scans beaming out to the audience, Randy told his audience about the cancer that is devouring his pancreas and that will claim his life in a matter of months. On the stage that day, Randy was youthful, energetic, handsome, often cheerfully, darkly funny. He seemed invincible. But this was a brief moment, as he himself acknowledged.

Randy’s lecture has become a phenomenon, as has the book he wrote based on the same principles, celebrating the dreams we all strive to make realities. Sadly, Randy lost his battle to pancreatic cancer on July 25th, 2008, but his legacy will continue to inspire us all, for generations to come.
