Spent the afternoon with this guy, a book, a cup of coffee, and a cup of hot chocolate in our respective hands. Quiet time poring over our books, mostly, but a solid part just talking about the things that must matter most in a man’s life. Hoping and praying he happily keeps the focus and the drive to make his journey meaningful and positively influential.Life Unscripted | © 2014 Lawrence del Mundo http://instagram.com/lawrencedm

From time to time, I use the photos I take of my Family to play a "Do You Remember When and Where?" game with my Kids. 

I fire up a slideshow, show them a photo at a time and ask them just that… “When and where was this?”

It’s quite fascinating to know that they get to remember the places, the circumstances surrounding a moment, how they felt during a particular instance… 

I hope to continue this until they are much older, when those childhood moments are most susceptible to being forgotten. 

I want them to be able to answer, with details and burning nostalgia, when asked, "Do you have vivid memories of your childhood?" 

"Oh, yes. When I was 3, I remember going up an old tower made of red bricks with my Mom and Dad and my 2 Brothers.  We were wearing funny looking hats. 

My Dad was not wearing a hat, but he was busy taking photos of us wearing our funny looking hats.”

Oh, Son… Don’t forget that I also got to wear a hat. I took a photo of myself and the person who lent me that hat.  

Remember? 

Got booted out of Facebook Mobile. Couldn’t log in.

A very good sign of things to come, perhaps?
