I Live In Notes and Photographs Or, Would You Take My Picture ‘Cause I Won’t Remember

Drea is one of my favorite bloggers for two reasons:

1. She’s a good writer.
2. She’s easy to relate to. She digs good food, good pop culture (Lost! Joshua Radin!) and understands that both hyperbole and profanity are necessary to survive in the modern world.

A couple of days ago, she posted about how she almost burned down her kitchen, made a delicious meal and started a pretty interesting photography project in which she takes a picture every day at the same time.

It’s an exercise in accountability and being mindful of how we choose to spend our time which is an excellent idea.

And it got me thinking.

Every couple of years, I have an American Beauty moment where I see something, take Lester Burnham’s words to heart:

There’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst.

and vow to do a better job of remembering life’s fleeting, beautiful moments.

Last year, I started that project for myself and I’ve been doing a pretty good job keeping up with it, so this year (inspired by Drea), I’m going to document the day-to-day.

Day By Day

And this one, I’m going to share. Nothing big. Just one picture every day to help remember tiny moments because the mundane can be beautiful too.
