“Can we have tacos again?” “Sure, Monday and Tuesday taco night.” I slopped through the muck in the drive and drove downhill to the market. I clicked the radio on. Top of the news headlines: Clinton used a personal email address as Secretary of State, Remembering Documentary Filmmaker, Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter, Cristo… all direct cinema, letting the story naturally unfold) passed away, Photographer Roy Colmer captured 3,000 photos of New York City’s Doors in the mid-70s, Nuclear talks with Iran.
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.
