“I need more pink and yellow in my life.” “Like the music, the bands and songs . . . pink, yellow?” “No, the colors. In the kitchen. What do you think about a taffy pink vintage cupboard with some yellow fiestaware . . . like this one here.” I showed him a photo from a design site. “Not so much.” Wait, there’s a band called yellow?
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.
