Shots of Awe: Introduction & The Creative Urge

I came across a bunch of interesting, short, and inspirational youtube videos called Shots of Awe.  Over the course of the next few weeks I’ll be posting some of them.  This is the first one to give you an idea of why they started to make them.  It’s the urge that any of us who write, draw, film, or do photography feel.  The urge to create.  The need to loosen the knot in our chest and make a contribution to the world.
