Jerry’s Map!

My husband, Jerry Gretzinger, is a fantasy map maker and a couple of years ago, I commissioned Greg Whitmore, a family friend and really skilled videographer, to make a mini movie about Jerry and his map.  My able son, Henry Gretzinger, also helped with the camerawork.  The movie accompanied Jerry’s first map show and was also posted on Vimeo, a site for videographers to exhibit their work.  This film was just now picked as a Vimeo favorite and is now kind of a cult viral hit!  Watch it here.

I also provided a link to Jer’s blog on my earlier post  Fake Rock Farm.  His map pieces decorate the front of our barn!  Congrats, hubby!

  1. Meg, thanks so much for the tip about Jerry’s video. I watched it twice last night; it was as if Jerry was talking to me in my living room. I have to say that I don’t know anyone even remotely like him; the way Jerry’s mind works is fascinating. Not being at all creative myself, I can’t imagine what it’s like to have such a nonstop active mind, and the need to constantly create. (No doubt you too are like this in at least some ways, Meg, since you too are a very creative person). In all seriousness, I hope Jerry leaves his brain to science. If he does, I’ll leave mine too, so the scientists can compare a fabulously creative brain to one that’s perfectly happy just blobbing around doing nothing to occupy itself except reading an occasional mystery book or watching a favorite movie I’ve seen about twelve other times. Whereas my doodles are just that — doodles — Jerry’s turned into a lifelong creative outlet. What a fascinating man to live with! What interesting conversations you must have! What a great team you two have made with your respective talents and creativity! I loved when Jerry said he’s good for another twenty years [working on the map]. And major kudos to Greg and Henry for the great camera work!
