Making Your Own Luck

November 11, 2008
Okay, I’ll admit it. I admire David Jay like a pre-teen from the 80s who gushes over rag-mag heart throbs. But in a professional way. Seriously. ;)

I think this man is single-handedly creating a better world for all of us by filling it with people who truly get what it means to spread joy and kindness. Meet Wayne Toshikazu: former lawyer turned amazing photographer. Wayne is like most of us. Yearning for freedom in his life, self-fulfillment, and that feeling of great happiness that comes from knowing you are exactly where you are meant to be. This year, Wayne took his leap and has been met on the other side with– what I can only imagine to be– astounding rewards with more yet to come.
Taking this kind of leap takes more than just courage. It takes faith. Seeing him inspires me and, I think, inspires others to do the same. I hope that, whoever you are reading this blog, can feel inspired too. That you can get this small glimpse into someone else’s journey to freedom and find the faith to take one of your own…whatever that may be. Because if we are all so lucky, we’ll be that much better for it, and our world will be too.
Okay, so David is not single-handedly doing this. It is ALL of us, together. On the whole, we are a land of great people searching for ways to do great things and for great reasons. In searching, we (in photography) find David, leading the way by example and providing incredible tools to make it that much easier. We should all be so lucky in our journeys.
Godspeed my friends.
UPDATE: Wayne is an almost lawyer turned rad photographer. ;)

    P.S. I left law school after my first year, so I’m an almost lawyer turned photographer. :)
