Don't Believe The Hype

I'm at Redeemer University College today on behalf of World Vision and I just need to say that, despite all of the terrible things you hear in the news about teens and young adults, I can't say enough good things about how great these kids are. I've heard story after story about their involvement in fundraising, child sponsorship, their concern for the poor, and their commitment to justice. Frankly these kids are way ahead of where I was back when I was 19 or 20.

And it's not just the nice Christian kids at this school either. Teens from high schools all over the country are pumped about the 30-Hour Famine and supporting humanitarian causes of all kinds. If you're one of those "kids these days" curmudgeons, I suggest you talk to some of these kids. Sure, there are bad things going on, but for the most part today's teens give me hope for a bright future.

My PoV

For roughly the last three months I've been taking photos from my doorstep every morning at 8 AM. It was an easy enough project while I was unemployed, but now that I'm working again it's not going to be quite so easy to keep going. Not to mention that it was getting a little boring seeing the same view every day!

As of January 1st I've started posting the point of view from wherever I am at 8 AM. The daily photo will be exactly what I'm seeing from my PoV at exactly 8 AM each day. If I'm still at home and haven't quite started the day I'll just keep shooting a photo from my doorstep, otherwise, look for a new photo every day, likely posted later in the evening.

Just click on the Deivox Images link in the left-hand menu to see life from my PoV!

UPDATE: Okay, so this little venture exhausted itself pretty quickly. Probably because I've been exhausted. So, now that you've read the above post, you can totally ignore it. Until further notice Deivox Images is on hiatus.
