Vote For Me!

Hey everyone,
I have recently submitted a photo to JPG magazine and I think you all should vote for it. In fact, I have recently submitted two. If I get published 1) my name is in a photo magazine, 2) I get $100 and 3) it really helps my self-esteem.

So vote for me. It's for the kids.

Gutter Brain

This morning on my drive to work I saw a car with the license plate that said: "HCKYFAN"

I immediately thought, "Wow, HICKEY FAN? That's a little personal."

No Sarah, I do believe that this person likes HOCKEY. Yup. HOCKEY FAN.

Life Before Death

"For weeks, all she’d wanted to do was die. But, she said, “now I’d love to be able to participate in life one last time…”"

“All my efforts were in vain”, she said. “It is as though I am being rejected by life itself"

"I wonder if it’s possible to have a second chance at life? I don’t think so. I’m not afraid of death — I’ll just be one of the million, billion grains of sand in the desert…”

One of my favorite bloggers Dooce blogged about this site today.
These are portraits before and after death. I clicked on the link and sat mesmerized at the poignancy of the thoughts of those in hospice.

It makes me so aware of the reality of death, the importance of living, and the value of faith and hope.

What are your thoughts?
