Day 21: Spring is in the vicinity

April 2, 2010 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Journal,Photography. Tags: , ,

Spring is almost here! Hip, hip, hooray!!

It’s been a long gloomy and soggy week (both literally and metaphorically). But at the end of the week, spring came and saved the day week. I’ve been reading a lot and in consequence I’ve been pondering a lot (yes, reading makes you think), it seems like the whole soul searching thing is finally kicking in. I am grateful for what I have and the opportunities I’ve been given, this is the best time to start dreaming big (See what a little bit sunshine can do for you?). I don’t want to go into details, but at least I wrap this entry with this:

“That is life, it forces you to laugh when you don’t feel like it, to cry when you don’t want to cry, to say something is not ok when you think otherwise. Life pulls you away from the people you love and it ties you with a rope to people you don’t want to associate with. No, life is not like that. It’s me, in this moment, in this instance, being tossed around by the whirlwind of life.”
~ He-Man

Day 20: Puddle of Dirty Water

Puddle of dirty water

Puddle of dirty water

I guess the title says it all, today was one of those days that I ask myself why am I even trying. I don’t want to bore you with my ranting, so there you go, another photograph.  If you need me I will be stranded to my bed, listening to ColdPlay in shuffle mode, over and over again.

Day 19: Missionaries Doing What They Do Best: Helping

March 30, 2010 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Journal,Photography. Tags:

Missonaries writing the address of the closest Church to where I live. Nice!

On my way home from downtown, I stumbled upon two LDS Missionaries, they were heading home after apparently a very long day. I told them I was also LDS and we all got very excited, it was nice to see them in such a different context. We chatted for a bit and exchanged a couple Mormon jokes. I never got to that point where I had to serve a Mission, there are still so many things that are new for me and need to learn, but I hope that someday I will be able to contribute with my “granito de arena” (Grain of salt) to the Mission of the Church. As an extra bonus, they helped me by giving me directions to the closest Church to where I live (No more long trips to Daegu!!! At least not every week). I might not be serving a full time mission, but I can certainly put a link on this entry, which would explain more about what I am talking about, missions and the LDS Church in general. I am sure someone will find it useful.

Day 18: Octopus is not for everyone

March 29, 2010 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Journal,Photography.

I think is time to start cooking at home

Finally I am coming out of my cold, it’s been a good day, although, lunch was a bit of struggle. I was never a sea food type of person, but now living in the coast, I decided to give it a try, so I have been experimenting here and there. But today lunch was a different beast, quite literally. I hate being picky with food, especially when the cook sits in front of me, smiling at every move of my chopsticks. Oh well, I had to suck it up, again literally, and go for it. And to think the days of my mother waiting for me to finish my soup were gone (sigh). I think this is a good allicient to start cooking at home. I can’t wait for tomorrow. Au revoir et bon appétit!

Day 17: Dad and Daughters at Church

March 28, 2010 Posted by Alfredo. Category: Journal,Photography. Tags:

When you ask kids to hug their dad, this is the only possible outcome

Let me start with this statement: Church is great. I love going to Church and seeing families there, kids running around, young couples arguing but seeing them holding hands right after, grownups pouring their experience and wisdom upon those less experienced (e.g. me). But overall, feeling being part of a great family, in which we are all members and everybody is welcome. It was a great time to bond, eat, play, meet everybody and eat again. I hope everyone is able to find a shelter or a break from their daily routine, something that charges you up and inspires you for the coming week. For me, Church is where that is.

I’ve decided to create a set exclusively for my Church pictures. I hope you enjoy.
