We came in from the Arctic wave, swirled snow and wind that sucks your breath away. Before bed, the little one pressed some buttons on the laptop and played Pleased To Meet Me by The Replacements. He bounced up and down to the album, fast then slow, pausing to air drum and lip synch, and head bop. A natural performer. I’m in love, what’s that song . . .
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.
