The blizzard turned out to be a good old-fashioned snowstorm with enough snow accumulation to cancel school (less than a foot), keep traffic off the roads, and walk the hills before sundown (which didn’t happen, unless you count taking the trash out). We had power and regular comforts to fall back on: chocolate, oranges, tea. Plus a surplus of soup, water, and candles, in case the super blizzard came through.
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.
