oh what fleeting moments I should capture, oh what memories I should still possess

See how she flies!

This is the picture that sparked my photo blog creativity once again - albeit almost 3 weeks after I took it. What I see is Amanda swinging wildly out over the body of water that she calls Swan Lake. What I think is that will never be me. What I wonder is when did I get too scared to fly?

I don’t believe for one moment

that youth is wasted on the young.


Peyton Sings

This is my nephew Peyton, singing with The House of Burgess last summer. What I see is a 13-year-old who is trying something new, even though he was nervous about it. What I think of is determination; of willingly, even purposely, doing things that are daunting, or even scary, or even in front of an audience. What I feel is proud.

He is strong

who conquers others;

he who conquers himself

is mighty.
