We’re officially half-way through the year. Or we will be in a few days.
I’m mostly saying that to remind myself, because it feels like 2018 is never going to end. It feels like we’ve been stuck in 2018 for three years already, it will always be 2018, this is our life now. This is an impossible year in which to write, or look for beauty, or make art in general. June in particular has been a difficult month – in light of the news, it’s hard not to feel like this is all a little bit shallow.
But art – writing and photography – is what’s keeping me sane this month. This year.
I’m still missing a day here and there, but that’s fine. I haven’t let the project stall again, so I’m happy.
I’m also starting to think about what comes after I hit Day 100.
A day late with this (time got away from me this weekend), but here goes. The last two weeks, I’ve been: working | processing | finishing | going | sorting | waking | thinking | figuring | trying | reading
I’m honestly starting to freak myself out with this. Just a little.
I’ve managed to stay (mostly) on schedule for more than one week in a row!
It’s been a stressful two weeks, but it hasn’t been all bad. I’ve been: wondering | meeting| catching| loving | taking | thinking | resisting | overthinking | starting | reminding
I’m not a superstitious person.
At the same time, I’m really reluctant to talk about how well this project is going. I feel like if I do, if I talk about how I’m finding a rhythm, I’ll jinx it.
But I’m not a superstitious person, and this project is starting to go really well. Not every single day, but on the days when it does go well, it’s kind of amazing. I’m happy with this project specifically, and I’m thrilled with my photography in general lately.
