There comes a time in your life when you realize that you have fewer days ahead of you than behind you. When you come to understand that the journey is far more important than the destination. When the people you meet and the relationships you forge are like ripples upon the water, growing larger and spreading farther than you ever thought possible. When a simple act of kindness brings you untold joy!
I want you all to meet Sabrina Henry. An avid photographer with a keen eye and a wonderful spirit. A warm, friendly soul from Vancouver, British Columbia (that’s the great white north to folks in Texas). A fellow blogger. A fellow tweeter (what’s plural for Twitter?). And a person of great compassion as you can see in my favorite image she took during a recent trip to Africa.
I arrived home this evening to find a package waiting for me from Mpix (the printer I use). Inside was a beautifully mounted print of this image that so reminded me of the work of those Life and Look magazine photographers in the 1960’s. This photograph speaks volumes about the Maasai girl behind the blanket and about the person behind the camera. I can’t tell you how tickled I was to receive this image and how that simple act of kindness made my day. It will hang proudly in my office for years to come. And when my grand-children ask me about it someday I’ll tell them about Sabrina Henry.
PS: To my friends at Adorama, Happy Pesach. To my friends Mark, Ray, Matt, Jerod and Sabrina – Happy Easter. He is Risen.
