So it’s Friday, like as in Flash back Friday and I thought I’d put some fun polka dots out there. Also this model happens to be one of my all time favorite people. She was fantastic to shoot with and equally a fabulous human being and I do count myself fortunate to have met her.
Today, is a day when most Americans remember and honor our fallen Men, Women, and family of heros. I am always reminded of one particular person, although he didn’t die on the battlefield I dare say he lost apart of myself there in the jungles of Vietnam. I knew him from the time I was in Elementary school till his passing in the Summer of 2008. We didn’t always see eye to on quite a few things, but he always saw something in me that I couldn’t see for myself. I wish I had told him how much it had meant to me. I do try albeit not always so successfully to let others know what I see in them, their potential even when they themselves don’t see it, or even believe it.
So to him I say thank you for the memories, I am proud to know you.
