He built an invisible wall with his hands, slid them up and down, and then pulled himself around a corner. “Where did you learn to mime, school?” “Yeah, a storyteller came and taught us how make a pretend wall from all the way to that part to this part. Now watch what I’m doing. Cut down like that. Go across. Cut down like that again. See two doors. Then go across. Isn’t that cool? When you get really good, you can do it in the air like this.”
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.
