Atlanta, Georgia & Short Pump, Virginia


Trudy White, daughter of Chick-fil-A founder Truitt Cathy, leads a group of students on a values tour as part of a gap year program for high school graduates. The students explore values, service and leadership for an academic year before entering college.

John White at the entrance of the Dwarf House in Hapeville, site of Truitt Cathy's first restaurant where he perfected his chicken sandwich. From here it grew into the mulit-billion dollar Chick-fil-A Corporation. John is Trudy's husband and director of Winshape, the charitable foundation founded by Cathy that sponsors the gap year program.

Chelsea passes through the door of the original Dwarf House. She is a participant in the program and the daughter of a writer/editor I worked with ... well ... long before she had Chelsea.

It was a day to connect with old friends. Wolfgang, left, Eric, right, and I worked on a number of projects together when we all lived in Atlanta 14 years ago. Eric and I moved to Richmond about the same time where we worked together until three years ago. Both are phenomenal video producers.

Short Pump

Mallards take to the air over Short Pump. About 20 ducks circled overhead for several minutes, perhaps practicing for their migration south in a few weeks.

Danielle celebrates her third birthday tonight. Her mother is from Jamaica and part of a teacher exchange program here. Her father is a pastor in Jamaica. The family will be in Short Pump for a year.
