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 13 2009 fancy

in one moment,
one small moment
I became a mother

Gold necklace from my grandmother on my mom's side
Butterfly from her great-grandmother on her dad's mom's side
Fingernail polish from nowhere in particular
A flower from last year's birthday
And a dress from mom

She is made of everything that was before her
and she is unique because she is the only one like her.
