He was immediately smitten with his new camera and Jula wouldn't take any photos at all. We asked her why and she told us because she could remember it all. She didn't "need" a camera. This bothered me a little bit. First because our intent was to show them both so much of America that I knew that pictures would bring back the memories. But most of all because it was in my opinion a selfish decision. We had a family meeting and discussed how much it would mean to send photos back to her parents. Her parents paid a huge amount of money and sacrificed their own feelings of sending her across the world for her wish to travel to America. We explained this is the least she could do. So she obliged and she eventually became better than myself at taking photos of dragonflies and other various nature. For Christmas upon her return to Germany, her parents bought her a better camera!

And where does that come from? Were you born with that ability or did you grow into having that ability? Did you pop out of the womb fully capable of thinking for yourself? Of course you didn't. That ability developed in you. Your environment made you into the self confident man you are. That doesn't happen to everyone. Not everyone reads the same data from the same circumstances. Every thing you see is filtered through all the things that you have seen [before.] ~Omega Man www.survivalistboards.com
