day 168 I should have seen it coming. The guitar magically appeared in the living room two days ago after many months in storage upstairs. It's been the new wake up call since. They banged on the guitar together while L screamed darkness over and over like the lead singer in a death metal band. The little one would soon to follow his lead. Umm, what? Forget six a.m. "Where’d he learn that song?" It's from the Lego Movie." "Oh, okay then." +++++ 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.
