….growing pains…

… remember the fragile steps of growing-up… of being… the safe and thrill of  the unknown.. of seeing and feeling the touch of experiences in life…

…the firsts…

the first time you jumped into the water from a height too high…

the first time you were under water just a bit too long………

the first time you walked into a new class….

the first time you performed on a stage….

the first time (and thank God only) your brother plays william tell with you….( and no he did not miss!!)

the first time you climbed walls,  realizing that there is no way down…

the first time I packed my bags  & walked out into the dark for forever never to return….

the first time you rode a bike……and then let go of the handlebars….

the first time you got lost in the woods….

the first time you were at a temple.. giving offerings….

the first time you rode the rollercoaster….

the first time you sailed & the winds died…..

the first time you met your best friend……

the first time you said good-bye to your best friend….

I believe that one says that life experiences’ builds your soul.. and guides you onto new trails… I really do believe, and in many ways, live by that… as a child I was fortunate I lived in a world past… in Far East Asia’s exotic lands….. where life experiences of the soul are a necessity to survive… I was at morning temples  in Bangkok giving offerings….I swam among stingrays….dove off cliffs …..in essence experiences that I would love to have passed on to the bandits….. but fortunately they have their own first… their own experiences…. their own passions…building their own souls…. all unique… and I am fortunate to be a part of that journey…..

“…influences come from everywhere but when you are actually shooting you work primarily by instinct. But what is instinct? It is a lifetime accumulation of influence: experience, knowledge, seeing and hearing. There is little time for reflection in taking a photograph. All your experiences come to a peak and you work on two levels: conscious and unconscious….”…...arnold newman...
