Lucid Communicating with Myself as a Child

Jacob at 3 Years, Fairchild Gardens, Miami

I have been observing this image on my living room wall for the last few days.  Actually, I clearly remember this image of myself as a 3 year old from my last visit to miami.

I look happy in the image.  Having my picture taken was a complete mission when I was a young.  I absolutely hated it.  I would moan and complain, and run from cameras.  It makes me smile now because I know that I direct others in order to create interesting images.

But this image means a lot to me.  I look at this image and I love the casual pose that I am in.  I am just there relaxed, with a ready for action posture.  The tree and myself are balanced nicely in the image.  The shade of the trees of Fairchild Gardens (now Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden) balance with the hot sunny spots behind.

My mother told me that this image came off the first roll of test film on their new camera.  Which was probably a 35 mm Minolta.  Little did my parents know that photography would become the defining character of my life.

It all stated with a click of a shutter on a new Minolta camera at Fairchild Gardens.  I as a man of 40 years engaging in some lucid communication with myself as a photographic image as a 3 year old.

Tobias Asleep, Quiet and Still

Monday, December 26th, 2011

I was happy to spend some time with my close friends on Sunday.  We were riding into Tokyo with their young, almost 3 year old child Tobias, aka Toby.  He is full of energy as young ones go; however, he was out cold on the train ride into the city  He is usually on the prowl with his shark fin hat, but not this time.  So quiet, so peaceful as he slept, the world of Tokyo spun by station by station.

I too, try to see the world through the eyes of a child.  To see things fresh and for the first time, even if I have seen the same thing for the millionth time.  Be childlike, but not childish.  Be young without being naive. We must learn to be comfortable with our selves so that we to can sleep as quietly and soundly as Tobias.

Poor Jonah

“Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.” Jonah 1:17

Poor Jonah spent three nights inside the great fish.  What amount of faith it must have taken to survive that ordeal.  Keep up the good spirits.  Do the good works.  Strive to survive in this crazy world.
