The Passage of Time

The night sky near Wandermere...

Earlier today, I went to lunch with Adam Wiltse to talk about his missionary experience in Guatemala. He served in the Guatemala Central Mission, and years ago, I served in the Quetzaltenango Mission. It seems like a lifetime ago.

We shared many common experiences, including meeting some of the same people. For example, he spent several months working with Juan Carlos Samayoa, who currently serves as a bishop in the LDS Church, and who was my missionary companion back in the day.

As we talked, I realized how much had changed, and how much remained the same.

The photograph above represents the Passage of Time. I left the shutter open for only 64 seconds, and yet if you look closely, you can see the stars begin to streak across the sky. For me, this photograph depicts the nature of time at its most basic level. Before calendars and clocks, we simply watched the movement of the sun, moon, and stars to measure the seasons and generations of our lives.

I am glad that the two of you were able to get together. I hope you had a great visit. He is such an awesome kid.
