Stories about those days.

The stories that people have about Jamie’s photos are a source of amazement.  Some are of the “that’s me and we were doing this” type of stories from Jamie’s friends. Some are the “I never met Jamie but this was taken on my birthday and it means a lot to me. And some are just stunningly moving one of a kind stories.

    I was born on 1st day of December 1988. I am not a photographer. I am typical ‘city person’. I would rather spend time in busy city, than somewhere in the nature. I am not even fond of flowers or plant in general – they are just in this world, and that is enough for me.

    But I am wilted.

    I wilted early, even before I could blossom. I wll turn 30 years old this winter. You can say, it’s a middle of life. It’s like a summer. It is a time in ones life, when you can live fully, achieve, feel, work, play. But I can not.

    I am just wilted, like this plant on the photo. As long, as I can remember, my life is just gray, dark, depressing. I AM suffering from depression since I was a child. When I grow older, instead of getting better, I got worse. Anxiety. Fobias. Obsessive-compulsive disorder. Posttraumatic stress disorder. Even though I finally went to psychiatrist and recived help, even though I still attend to therapy, even though I’m getting better… I am still wilted. And I feel like I will never fully blossom, and stay like plant in this photo, forever.

    I was born that day. I didn’t know it was a Saturday. I was born in Switzerland. And how selfish I am that I never realized that other people had their own life that day too

    Thanks for sharing these brilliant photos and I’m sad that Jamie left this world so early. Much gratitude and love.

    I was born on this day, like so many others. My father would always tell me “One princess left this world, but another one entered it.”
    My father was a cynical man with very little empathy, except for those incredibly close to him. My mother wasn’t much better. He would look at me and marvel at my innate kindness/compassion. And they would say that I didn’t get it from them, so i must have received some of the kindness that Princess Diana had when she died.

    He was in the Philippines on the day I was born! 🙂

    TRIVIA: We call that small vehicle “tricycle”. Then, look at the other tricycle. It has a yellow sticker that says DZRH. DZRH, is one of the famous radio stations in the Philippines back then.

    This is my birth day and this photo represents the circle of life for me. I believe souls don’t die, they remain until they find a new form to carry on living. This photo reminds me of that. It’s beautiful

    I was born in Greenville Texas on this day. It’s fascinating to see how the world was moving long before I was here and how it will continue long after I’m gone

    I was born in The Philippines this day. Maybe not at the exact same moment but it’s just amazing to know how vast tge world really is. You never think about what other things happen on your birthday and it’s kinda beautiful realizations to know people were just going about their lives like it was just a normal day.
