Following the third year of a holiday letter comprised
of my (increasingly complex) life via a (increasingly complex) year-in-photographs, I
wondered what it would be like to join the great experiment of 365 days of photographs.
I'm not a photographer,
I'm a writer. I'm a visual thinker, and if ever there was proof that a photo is worth a
thousand words, it would be the story a photo tells me, or in this case, about me.
Follow me on this adventure, where I
learn about photography, my ability to record my life, my dedication to something (I've
never been known for doing anything everyday) in my posts. I've also discovered I'm
learning about time, the history of it, and the odd practice of recording it, measuring it,
turning it into something tangible, and I'll record these explorations in the sidebar.
As always, feel free
to say anything. My experiment is not a spectator sport.

March 25 2009 Write More

The Writing Conference with Jonathan Safran Foer is this Friday, and I teach a workshop as part of the Conference with the high school students. Preparation for this, I think, has caused me to be bitten by a writing bug: I've written more productively in the past few days than I have in the past three months. It's good to get out of a writing funk. My symptoms of creative burst extend beyond the writing, though: I posted about the bags I managed to finish, I have new students I'm doing well with, and I can manage to school both my youngsters at the same time. Heck, I can't even make myself something to eat without writing something.

Macro, stand back + zoom, and flash.
