A LETTER TO MY YOUNGER SELF
A. J. Meek looks back and reflects on his life.
"I am writing this letter to you from me, an old man now. It is from the future so don’t disregard it. It is true. Sorry about addressing you as Albert. I know you don’t like Albert but prefer your initials A. J. or your childhood name of Jim, but you will grow to accept and like it. It is a family name—the name of your ancestors—many who were named Albert.
First of all I want to say, “Don’t worry so much."

The Art of Photography and the Amateur Ethic
In recent times, the use of the word “amateur” has come to being an uncommitted, hackneyed, immature, and unaware practitioners of a given hobby such as photography. The true meaning of the word “amateur”, however, is doing something for the love of it.  It would seem that a such a gifted person making photographs for joy’s sake would be the salvation of many dreary academic art projects by providing a fresh point of view and endearing spirit, benefiting humanity’s quest for enlightenment.
