Zen and the art of video editing

IT MIGHT COME as a big surprise, but editing video and motorcycle riding have something significant in common: it can be called the Zen of video editing.
On Saturday afternoon Aug. 17, I enjoyed a marvelous summer’s day on the oceanfront at Belmont Shores, in downtown Long Beach, Calif.
The bike path, which both circles the marina and follows the shoreline south and east for about three miles, affords splendid views of the Queen Mary, Long Beach Harbor and the downtown skyline.
I covered the distance in less than two hours.
It took more than twice as long to edit the video. It was during this process that I became aware of the zen of video editing.
