Things I learned from Alan

Alan is my nephew. He is three years old. Yes of course like all 3 year olds' hyperactive. He does this little peculiar thing when he falls down. Which is pretty often he doesn't really care to watch his step, so you have to be watchful all the time. But anyway every time he gets hurt, he never wants me around. He kicks and screams at me like if I pushed him. Good golly, yes!! I have to walk away into another room. No matter how sweet my approach is only my mom is allowed to comfort him. I chuckle inside because I think to myself this is a pretty neat love thing, this kid got hurt and pushes me away but I still love him the same exact way. It reminds me of Agape love-God's love, "I have a purpose in loving you and no matter how bad you misbehave and push me away this love doesn't move."

Lessons I Learned From a Dog

One of the most valuable lessons I learned from Jesh de Rox at the ClickAway Conference for photographers was how to connect on a better level with people. This isn't only for photographers. 
 Life itself is full of joy when you're relationships are right. It is a fresh breath of air to have an honest connection.  So how do you connect? It's simple, very simple. 
How many people can say that dogs have been better at being man's best friend for years? 
As soon as a human walks through that door, Oh it is on! Dogs be wagging their tale like you just made their day and you have no clue why!
And you get that fussy feeling this dog really likes me...eeek!
Many people want their social entities or business to enlarge. But the basic need is to treat those already in front of you with a welcoming honest spirit.  The kinda welcome that tells you without words you are so precious to me. I am so excited to be in your presence. I can't wait to spend time with you.

Some of the Pet's that crossed my journey and my life richer.
Here is a picture of my brother's unforgettable dog Chuck:
