The story began with an orange peel casually slipped from a table’s edge. The stranger walked by, retrieved the peel from the floor, and said I think this belongs to you. She laughed. Her hand fluttered to her throat. Oh yes, what would I have done without it? Certainly, you would have carried on with your sketching likely having not an inkling of a petal out of place. I think you’re right. Would you mind standing there just so?
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.
