Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Kids without Electronics – Tao Philippines Adventure

99.9% of kids I see are always plugged into some type of electronic device.  As I was thinking about why I like these images, it donned on me that this is actually what kids do when they don’t have smart phones, laptops, tablets, hand-helds, desktops, mp3 players and all other types of gadgetry.  Quite a departure from sitting quietly, dissociating and staring at a screen.  I see joy, risk, togetherness, happiness, exercise, collaboration, creativity, all-five-senses-being-engaged-at-once activities.  This is how a lot of learning and development happens.  I don’t mean to be critical of children.  This is turning into a journal entry that I’m writing to/about myself.  I’m one of the worst offenders, when it comes to the “plugged-in” life.  This serves as a reminder at how awesome it is to just get out there and do something, talk to someone, force yourself to have to create your own significance.

BTW – This happened while the Seahawks were busy destroying the 49ers in the C-Link, 42-13.  One of my favorite memories from 2012.
