POSTS TAGGED 'present company project'
So THIS happened last week and I’m still melting:
Justin :: For months now, I’ve been keeping track of Amber Mahoney‘s Present Company Project. It’s quite inspiring for me…I had always wanted to try it out, but never seemed to have the courage. Last night, when I was walking around a local park with my wife, I noticed a gentlemen resting on a bench near one of the baseball fields. I thought to myself, “Now’s the time…” I walked up to him, introduced myself and told him that I’d like to take his photo. He looked at me, puzzled at first, but then his face relaxed and he agreed.
After I snapped the photo, I asked, “If you could give a stranger some insight/advice and could sum it up in one sentence, what would that be?” He chuckled and said that sort of thing has to be discussed over about 12 beers. I laughed and agreed, but I waited for a response. After a few seconds in thought, he looked up and said “Well…I suppose the pursuit of happiness, over time, turns into the pursuit of living.”
SO MANY THANK YOU’s to Justin for sharing this lovely story and beautiful polaroid. I hope you’re all having a wonderful week!
