The first in some time...

After being visited by thoughts of my good friend Age, I was inspired to contact him with news of my goings on. I thought of e-mailing, and went in search of his e-mail address. In looking for his e-mail address and looking for news of his goings on, I thought it might be easier to post on my blog with the pictures and descriptions of each. I hope the few who see them enjoy.

I have decided to post a few of my favorites first, then post the groups from which they came.

Here are some of my favorites:
(Paris, France)

(My sister, Seyka, and her mini, CrackerJack)

(My dad and his horsies, Shortcake and CrackerJack)

(From left to right, Me, my sister Seyka, and my dad)


(A park in Oregon. I was playing with long-exposure.)

(Some cool Black and White Shots I took)

(Pictures of a friend's winery)

(Sunset in Santa Barbara)


That's all for now. I will share more if anyone sees these and likes them.
I would like to share more and get feedback on them. I don't really know what I'm doing with the camera, so any input from people "in the know" (or even from people who just like what they see) would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks to whoever sees these.

Helping a Friend

I started this account so that I could post a comment to a friend's blog, but if this holds the same attraction for me that MySpace seems to for other teenagers, I may end up continuing what I have started.
I am a high school senior, currently attending a Jesuit high school in the Bay Area, California. As my blog title indicates, my passion right now is pursuing enlightenment. I eagerly look forward to each opportunity for the wealth of knowledge that it portends, especially interactions with my friend "Optimystic Bloghead." If you visit his blog, you'll begin to get a sense of why.
Life is exciting to me, and I am worried about missing a moment. Ever since I discovered Emerson and Thoreau I have had a profound respect and love for nature, and an observation of the interconnectedness of the universe. The depth and intricacy of life and its processes is awe-inspiring to me, and I am anxious to learn as much I can about it as I can, in any way that I can.
Life has only just begun, but it's already a lot of fun.
That's all for now.
