"Hitch Your Wagon to a Star"

A very special lady has committed and become fruitful in her endeavors to achieve a doctoral degree. I admire her tenacity and perserverance. Working full time and going to school is so tiresome. Ah, the fond memories when I went to graduate school at NC State (after teaching high school biology students all day, I would then drive to Raleigh, NC for 2 hours) there were many times I wanted to give up because of sheer exhaustion. Gwen went beyond her masters degree and now is Dr. Gwen, wow, I am so proud for her. The hectic years that passed, the long drives, the research, the assignments, the this and that. You, Gwen, have become a master of it all. Congratulations and thank you for letting me capture some of your memories.

The Miracle League of San Antonio

On April 5, 2008 I had the privilege to document a few lasting memories for a few well deserving kids and volunteers. That single morning warmed my soul for the rest of my life. The determination, perseverance, happiness, friendships, and tenacity this group had was out of this world. Because of this event, I have become a better person and I could never repay these kiddos for the joy they have given me. I encourage every person to take a Saturday morning and cheer on these teams. You can find out all the scoop about this worthwhile program here.

Here is a snippet of the joy. Enjoy!

Field of Dreams

This past weekend I felt like the luckiest person on Earth. After reading an article on the Miracle League of San Antonio I felt compelled to give something. I was not sure what I could give to this special group of children, considering their first game was just 2 days away. Then I thought, perhaps I can capture their hearts and joy in a photograph. I was honored when this wonderful group of volunteers allowed me to capture some of the best memories for these children, their families, and for my soul. I will post more later, but here is a sneak peak.
