“Most people discard the past, always seeking the shiny and new. Rust is proof of the past. Rust is proof of history. Will our children even know what a television without a remote was like or what a rotary phone is? It’s funny to think that the gadget of tomorrow could one day be history.”

I have often thought of cars as time machines, driving forward into the future, while leaving the past in your rearview. Making history as you go along.History is what you make of it. To create history you don’t have to be a superstar athlete, model, actor, or a world leader. Wake up daily, jump in your car and head into the city, you are making history, YOUR history. Embraceyour daily adventures and make the most of them.High School reunions are a big part of your history, they remind you of how you were molded as a teenager. High School might have been the driving force behind what you are today. I had the pleasure of attending a 20 year High School reunion and I shared in some beautiful moments with my wife and her friends.History, your history, is what you make of it. Make it great.

Being a teenager instills a sense of power in oneself. It’s a critical transitional period before the responsibilities of adulthood- taxes, kids, spending ⅓ of your life at work, et cetera. There’s a part in all of us that wants to believe it won’t happen. No, not to us. We think we’ll magically stay young forever.
But the reality that no one is the exception starts to set in. To cope with that we act out. We cause trouble. We love recklessly. We do whatever it takes to make us feel invincible for as long as possible.
Jhune Li’s entries for “Balance”
The best way to understand the importance of balance was to showcase its antithesis: imbalance, or indulgence.
The first photo conveys the idea that anticipation is almost sweeter than the actual experience
The second is about the initial bliss and ecstasy from the act of self-gratification
The feeling doesn’t last long and is replaced with regret, as seen in the last photo
Balance is essential because too much of a good thing leads to consequences.
There is a direct relationship between balance and imbalance- more you indulge, the more remorseful you feel.

the in-between is the adventure. our lives are all made by our connections with others and the collective adventures that prompt our relationships.
the first photo was taken while reconnecting with an old friend on the hillside of tantalus. the second photo is of a sixteen-year-old’s first bicycle ride from kalihi valley to koko head. the third photo was taken at the beginning of a new friendship.
most of my photos are bicycle-related. almost all my closest friends have been bicycle enthusiasts. the bicycle is a social form of transportation that conveys limitless adventure opportunities.

For most of us an adventure is synonymous with the freedom to hike on the weekend, maybe spend few hours at the beach, or perhaps take a road trip out of town.
But for some us, an adventure is a life of sacrifice so that others may have theirs.
The spirit of adventure.
It is enjoyed by every single one of us because of a brave few that made a promise.
That you will live free or they will die trying.
