We found the keyboard on the side of the road. It was late summer, last year. The leaves started to color when people began emptying their garages or storerooms. It never fully worked. The sound was grungy and the microphone shorted out making for super lo-fi ear bursting noise punk. They loved it all the same so we kept it loaded with batteries and let them rock out until the house filled with crackles.
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.
