the path of the sage must become the path of the hero

Not an easy task to effectively share so much!

Probably the hardest part is that my daughter is only 12, and I have to be very careful to monitor how we share her stuff.

She is one of our principal photographers at jaklumen & family

have a sparkler, jak

Another fantastic capture she made on Friday

She wants her own YouTube channel, but for now, I put her videos at my YouTube account.

[This is me sneaking a video shoot of her working on something.]

I am not comfortable with uploading her artwork to my DeviantArt account anymore—maybe I’ll just have to create her one and administrate it myself until she’s old enough.
For now, I share things at jak & Cimmy’s Journal Jar

My dear wife Cimmorene—I love her so much, but I am struggling there too.

I am a visual person. She is audio-visual. Her big thing is that she LOVES to have her writing read aloud to her (like for Cimmy’s Stories), even when it’s not terribly convenient. I am still trying to get her to funnel this desire into producing a podcast. (Why yes, I have a SoundCloud account right here.)

She is a talented artist, too, but I am having a really difficult time getting her to share it online!

This was actually a joint project– I scanned in a pencil drawing she made and then did most of the digital editing. I say “most” because she wasn’t satisfied with the final result, and added a few details.

Wherever you see "jaklumen", that's me- the username is still unique as of the current year. Be aware that the facet you see, is only a small part of the me that is me.

  1. Lovely to see such a creative family. But drawing the line in sharing is always difficult.


    • Much of the time, I have to mitigate what she’s already shared. When she was much younger, she’d sneak in my instant messaging chats and start talking to my friends.

      I’m a parent that doesn’t brag about how smart my kids are– I’m a parent that usually laments that they’re too smart for their own good 😉
