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.

I haven't eaten it yet, but I'm sure it's delicious. All but the oil and vinegar, water and ice came from Okagawa Farms today. It was quite a busy place, but no green chilies in bushels yet.

Turn on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me. Blanch tomatoes, peel and chop or blend. Chop only the whites of the green onions. Turn on Radio Lab. Chop all other veggies, add a bit of the "other" ingredients, stir in ice. Cover and refrigerate for 2-4 hours while listening to This American Life. Serve cold in a bread bowl with garnish of cilantro, if you feel like it.

Anyway, that's what I did.
