take one photograph each day as a way to document my life. (read all 2 entries…)
I looked through

a lot of the entries for this goal… for some reason I just keep thinking about how awesome it will be to look back over a year’s worth of pictures and see the evolution of my life. I just have to remember to try to take meaningful pictures each day (even if it’s a small meaning).

Think how neat it would be to make a book of these pictures once I’m done: one page for each picture/day, plus a description, meaning, feeling, etc that I will have ::HOPEFULLY!!:: recorded each day to go along with the picture.

Sounds time consuming!!!!!!!! I hereby devote 5 minutes of each day to scribbling down some semblance of a description for each day’s picture. Hopefully I’ll be able to put the picture on my computer each day, too, but I know I won’t be near my computer every single day for the next year, so writing something down is the least I can do. Talk about a GOAL!

I’m not so anal that I have to start this on the first day of the year or of the month, but I do want to start it on the first day of the week, so I’ll begin this Sunday, August 19, 2007.

how's it goin with the photos?

I love hearing that someone has started a photo journal. I admit I don’t make time every day, but often enough that it creates quite a retrospective of my life. I also write a lot, as well as other things, so in the end I have sort of a photo-journal-artwork composite of memories. I think it’s one of the coolest things i’ve done. When I go over the material I can usually remember exactly what I was feeling on that day. Sometimes the memories are a lil intense, but definitely worth it.

It's going well--

Thanks for asking! I’m trying to be creative with it.

I used to be a seriously avid journal-writer. I still am, but I don’t write even close to half as much as I used to. I used to write almost every day. So last night, I wrote a good, hearty entry for the first time in a while (unrelated to the photo stuff) and it felt really, really good :)
