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.

May 10 2009 Me and My Mother's Day

I got to spend my mother's day with my mother for the first time in ten years. I can't describe how wonderful it is. However, I did not get to spend mother's day with my children, but my husband made sure I was well remembered, with an extra special basket of daisies delivered to my mom's doorstep. After an afternoon at the Art Museum and a great dinner out, and some tv and a game of chess with my dad, I got to hug my mom goodnight and she'll be here when I wake up in the morning.

I really like the mirror-to-compose thing for the self-portraits. Using it again here, though the lighting isn't what I expected.
