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.

September 01 2009 I have rested

I have rested my mind and my responsibilities.
I have given my thoughts to other endeavors, and friendships.
I have accomplished, and traveled, and wandered.
I have contemplated and discussed and left thoughts by the way-side.

I have rested, and I have remembered.

I have been frayed.
I have been together.

I have been missing. I have lost my mind.
I have recovered. I have rested. I have asked for help.

I have looked ahead. I have looked behind. I have looked upon places I have never imagined.
I have heard, and I have played.

I have today, and tomorrow. I have many days I have not expected to have.
I have not generally expected to have much of anything.

I have wondered.
I have been happy.
