Light seeped through the frame of his bedroom door. He left the lamp and radio on when he left for school. I switched them off then noticed the note on his bed. Babys like Legos it said. I laughed because it was true and he wrote it down so not to forget. We stopped by the library later on, I skimmed headlines before the little one, tired of waiting, wandered off.
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.
