A camera is literally an instrument to help the photographer. However, it is the photographer who sees the moments in time to capture, to express through the art of light.


What couldn’t this man do? Gene Kelly tap dancing on roller skates.#movementmondays

Told mom that there are two weddings on one day next Saturday and that was her reply.

I responded that whenever he comes, I hope he wants to live overseas.

Mom: “Why did you say that?”
Me: “Because I want to share the love of Jesus.”
Mom: “Don’t you know that people move here to America, why do you want to move to a different country? You don’t love me?”
Me: “I do love you, but I love Jesus more.”
Mom: “You’re suppose to love your parents more than Jesus. Don’t you know that the pastor preaches that in order for you to enter the Kingdom, you need to first respect and love your parents?”

Hinted mom my desire to serve overseas. She hinted two months having gone was enough and that was that.

Though I do not completely agree with you, thanks mom for challenging me to seek the reasons behind my actions.

When will people stop doing the chicken wing pose? In other words, hand-on-hip? I mean, I done it before, and I think it looks funny. I have quit. I am no professional poser. Be natural. A challenge to do something different.

It is the official first day of summer!!! We were blessed with a beautiful day. I hate it when it is a nice day and I am not outdoors. I have no one to spend time outdoors with besides myself…when I get my bike, I am gonna ride, ride, ride. But that’s gonna be by myself again. The weight of independence has heavily tipped the balance of company—I need a balance and I miss having it.

Remember the question I was struggling with along the lines of, “What can I do while I am at home?” Well, I was messaging a past roomie and her words spoke to me saying when you are bored, “creativity takes place.” This summer at home will be a summer of creating, a summer of projects! I’m pretty excited.

"The Dangers and Security of Longing."

Has longings led me to lose sight of what is placed before me? Has longings brought new ambition and adventures in life? What should longings consist of? Are longings to be uncomfortably comfortable too much to ask for? Should longings to seek the unknown be silent?

What may come of longings will only remain uncertain if never sought for.
