Enamored With Buddy























I have taken Buddy out for numerous occassions now. I find myself just wanting to take him out wherever I go. Sidebar: For those that have not had the pleasure of reading...Buddy is my camera. End Sidebar.

The train is always a source of fascination for me. The tracks, the signs, the waiting areas, inside or outside stops, and those that are waiting to aboard. It's a place where some folks spend massive amounts of time and others use minimally.

I have more recently been interested in alleys. I can't explain exactly why. Perhaps it is the fact that they are dingy, but yet have so much character attached to them. I can remember passing an alley way in the wee hours of the morning while walking to work in Philly. It would be dark, but this particular alley would be illuminated by the pastry shop that stood at the it's end.

Graffiti and murals are also a thing for me, especially when they are well done. It's truly phenomenal how people can pull together to get something as massive as a mural accomplished. It is also pretty swift of a graffiti artist to pull off his/her work (tags) on a strict time constraint and having to constantly look over their shoulder.

Pearls of Wisdom:
"If you love what you do, then it is no longer work. The money you earn is secondary when you love your work." ~Catherine Pulsifer, a quote from Love What You Do

Are you loving what you do today?

Be Blessed!

I am enamored with your love of Buddy! You capture the best part of things...

I am loving what I am trying to create for myself. It is truly a new frontier for me. But I must also say that my whole life has been in preparation for my right now.

I do hope you are well and in good spirits!

Love: All is well here. I learned some years ago that life is more about the journey than it is the destination. Your journey (the small morsel that I know) has been one for the books. People are inspired by your story. Keep up the good work!

Mr. Stephens: I am making it happen captain...LOL! And I still haven't forgotten about you!
