The First Day is the Hardest

We all have difficult days but normally the first day of our lives is the day we face our greatest challenges. With every new day and every new challenge comes new opportunities. I am frequently reminded of my father‘s favorite saying “Take One Day at a Time, Son” when I am having a trying day. Usually, the stress of thinking about the problems and challenges we are facing proves to be actually more difficult than the problems themselves. Although it is often difficult to do, it is important to face each new day (and opportunity) like our “First Day.” After all, if we could make it then, we can definitely make it now. With each new “First Day” comes a renewed sense of hope, faith, and endless opportunities to face our challenges, conquer our fears, and lead ourselves to a successful future. One of my best friends just had a baby and their little guy reminded me that the human will to persevere is probably one of our greatest assets if we could only learn to see the simple truths in our lives and focus on what is most important we would all be better off.  The following are some pics of the little guy right after he was born.  Also check out pics of mom and dad, (the Bride and Groom on their wedding day).

John J. Cali

 

 

I was fortunate enough to be assigned to a wonderful project building a new state-of-the-art music facility named after Mr. Cali.
Mr. & Mrs. Cali are fascinating individuals whose vision and contributions made the new Music School project
a tremendous success. On one of the building tours I snapped these two quick shots of Mr. Cali.  More Info here.


Portrait – Ben Lee, AIA

As past president of the AIA Architects League, I am responsible to host a gala dinner for Ben this weekend so he has been on my mind often this week. I want to make sure I do not let him down for his big day where we install him as our 2011 President. This portrait was captured at the AIA NJ East Coast Green Convention held in Atlantic City last September. I love how this image captures Ben’s humility, humor, integrity, and optimism all in one shot.
