Life of Value


Beach Day – short and sweet.  This is the first time I have travelled to the beach and did not actually take pictures of the beach.  For some reason I was much more interested in the journey then the actual time spent there.  I hope you find it as interesting as I did!!

Fait alone will lead you to – – –

The Netherlands


Much of the Netherlands lies leagues below sea level.  On one level I knew this but traveling there and actually seeing several different cities and the leaning of the buildings as they struggled to stand straight and tall in the sand, it really dawned on me that I was literally walking under the sea.  Not really but it was an impressive thought that everything i walked on had once been under water.  I understood after visiting several cities that the Dutch really were born of the sea.  I stayed in Wassanaar near a windmil, visited the Hague, Edam-Volendam, Leiden, Delft, Haarlem,  and a few other surrounding cities.  It was amazing and so different from my visit to Amsterdam.  I was super happy to have been able to get back there and explore areas that I had not been to before.  I hope you enjoy.

Even as the archer loves the arrow that flies, so too he loves the bow that remains constant in his hands.     Nigeria

Make no mistake, I get it, weddings around the world can be amazing, glorious, inspirational, and even horrible.  But weddings in Nigeria are sensational and chaotic things.  I have been fortunate enough (and honored enough) to have been invited to another wedding in Nigeria of one of my colleagues.  Wow!! Just pure fun.

The color, the chaos, multiple photographers, kids, dancing, eating, matching clothes…
