Kathy (02.16.11, 9:50 AM): I've been thinking about this post alot, and here are my thoughts. Life makes sense to me now that I have my priorities straight. God…family…work, in that order. I find that I don’t have any peace when they are out of whack. I look to Him for direction and approval, knowing that life is fleeting compared to all eternity….and what I want to hear from Him when I see him face to face is “well done, my good and faithful servant”, and to be able to look around and see that all the people I love surround me there. As for photography....it's a blessing to me, and I hope to others through me!!!!

Nick A. Kallis (02.15.11, 7:25 PM): Whats the most important thing you can be doing with your life? Love God. Love your fellow man. I love photography because I love the beauty of what God has created and I love the ability to capture a moment that can never be retreived except in a memory or in a photograph. Nick

NEFTALI (02.15.11, 4:09 AM): I've been following your blog for a few months now and even purchased a couple of your Crash Courses. But what i find most appealing is your willingness to share personal thoughts. As a 45 yoa, retired Police Officer and single father I find myself pushing myself to pursue goals I long since shelved or worse felt I was incapable of obtaining. We only get one spin on this ride and might as well push oneself to achieve one's own dreams

Daniel (02.12.11, 2:11 PM): Wouldn't you like to know the answers to questions like "Who am I?", "What is the purpose of me being here?". As a biochemist I still ask myself the question "Am I only the sum of all the biochemical reactions within this body or is there something more?"...

Aaron (02.11.11, 2:32 PM): I think about this all the time. I think it's one of my biggest distractions, continued thinking about it without doing anything. Why? Right now I feel like Rocky in Rocky III where Apollo was trying to train him and they were running on the beach and Rocky just gave up, he didn't even finish the run. Apollo was frustrated because he knew Rocky had the talent but Rocky's head was messed up. Another thought was from Top Gun when Maverick and Goose's jet goes into a spin (no fault of their own) Goose dies as a result and Maverick's head is all screwed up(understandably). In the movies they overcome and win. I am looking forward to your thoughts to accomplish the victory when the drive for one reason or another is seemingly broken.
