Morning filled the kitchen with speckled light. I cut a bruised banana into small pieces and placed them on the tray. C mushed the pieces together then ate several. Nana. Massenet’s Crépuscule (Twilight) played in the background. The sweeping melodies had the effect of floating in space with my eyes shut tight. Millions of stars lit up all around. I looked at C who looked to be somewhere else entirely.
I’m giving this yearlong project a spin. Undoubtedly, I will fall and pick up again. Knowing this makes it easier. Still, I plan to show up to record a short photo and story of my day. You’re welcome to join me. I’d love it really. We can give each other high fives and geek out with a hashtag (#ayearofus), not because everyone is doing it, but because we’re doing it, together. Showing up every damn day to make this creative habit real.
