Today I am giving myself the 'gift of the present time' as so wisely suggested by Stacy Julian last week.
The idea is to snap 10-12 photos that represent your life, right now. Keep the tiny collection in your purse or tote (terms are interchangeable for me, it seems), look through them frequently and then -- early next October '09 -- document your thoughts on the experience. It's an exercise in appreciation of life through photos. Love that!
Here are the photos from my weekend, plus a few recent shots from around the house:
Since the pages are intended to take a lot of handling, I printed them on canvas sheets. It's very touchable and was very fun to put together.
Now ... into the purse it goes!
