My first childhood friend was "RJ" Near. The RJ stood for Robert John. I can clearly recall playing at his house even before we entered kindergarten. We remained friends all through school and graduated in 1974. Neither of us were memorable students academically and are best remembered as being a couple of the class comedians. I haven't spoken to him or seen him in over 30 years.

For a reason I do not understand I suddenly thought of RJ this morning. I decided to Google him and I was absolutely blown away at what I found.

HERE is my old friend's website. He is a professional photographer, but I think he is more than that. He is an artist of the highest order.
