A Very Cool Experience… Mister Miagi Style {Life Prints Portrait Design}

Posted on October 29, 2010. Filed under: Articles, Image Posts |

Last month, my son attended a parade in Gresham Oregon where his Taekwondo school was marching.  It was a lot of fun with TONS of people… okay, maybe a bit chaotic.   Shortly before the parade itself was suppose to begin, we had all found the staging area where we were suppose to wait our turn to march.  Unfortunately, we found that we were one of the very last groups, it was a hot day and everyone was getting a bit anxious to get going. 

At one point, there was a large group of us standing around in a rather disorderly fashion with most of kids surrounding the school’s instructor, Master Jeong.  As we were standing around, a dragonfly started circling over head and caught everyone’s attention.  All of a sudden Master Jeong raised his arm in the air with two of his fingers held out like you might if you wanted a bird to sit on them.  Within seconds, this dragonfly started circling around and alighted on his fingers.  Master Jeong brought his hand down in front of his chest and actually started petting the dragonfly!

You should have seen the looks on all the kids faces as they encirled their instructor, who obviously was achieving a whole new level of respect and admiration at that moment.  Heck, most of us adults watching were standing there with our jaws dropped open in amazement.  Of course, I love dragonflies to the point of having a dragonfly as part of our logo for Life Prints.  So I was thoroughly impressed!

Luckily my son’s father, TJ, had his camera with him and thought quickly and started snapping some pictures.  Then just as quickly as it began, Master Jeong lifted his hand back into the air and the dragonfly flew off.

Amazing.  Truly one of those moments in life that make you pause and wonder at the beauty of nature and man’s relationship to everything around us.
