Sunday: Coffee and strawberries before sick duty began. Washed down the floor, curtain, and linens within reach. A pot of homemade gingery cabbage soup to ward off the flu. Lettuce seeds planted before he slept on the couch and the little one napped in bed. Noodles with butter, walk down the street, tea with milk and honey, American Routes: Big Joe Williams on guitar (recorded in Chicago in 1961).
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.
