The Gift of Light

Breaker Lighthouse

In life we are faced with two varieties of lights: those which guide us and those which serve as warnings. Wisdom is simply the ability to discern between the two.

When I had reached the peak of my growth spurt as a kid, I pleaded with God for a few more inches. Even as a grown man, frustration finds me in the form of a stiff neck from craning my head skyward to view the world around me.

It is easy to get into the habit of wanting what we do not have, be it money, a perfect body, or a taller stature. This habit is at the root of many life-altering problems, including materialism, eating disorders, and infidelity.

If I constantly tell myself, "I wish I was taller," "I wish I had more money," "I wish I had the newest ..." then I will fail to appreciate the things I have, and (more importantly) the person I am. I will fail to take ownership of myself: one of the amazing individuals on this earth. I will be hindered from becoming my fully realized self. If this happens, I am doing a great disservice to myself and to the world.

Month in Review: May

At the end of every month I will take a day to highlight the photographs that have been featured on my blog during that month. I will also be throwing in additional photographs that I took but that didn't make it into a post. This one is a little late, but the next one will be at the end of June. Enjoy!

An Apology

Last week I was an irresponsible blogger. I forgot to mention that I was leaving town for a vacation where I would not be able to access a computer. We got back to Los Angeles on Sunday, threw everything we own into the back of a Penske truck, and started the trek from the west coast of America to the east coast. My computer is one of the items in the back of the truck, so my noble hope to publish a sparkling new post as soon as I got back to the states was shattered. For that, I apologize.

I am currently traversing the state of Louisiana and tapping this post out on my cell phone. I know it is a little out of form for my blog, but I felt like I owed an explanation.

Now for the good news: I will be arriving at my home in Atlanta by 2:00 AM tomorrow morning with a camera full of photographs taken in Mexico. It may take me a day or two to get settled in, but I will be back to posting on a regular basis very soon.

Thanks for understanding!
