The themes are broad and flexible, just guidelines. I'd love you to join me, the more the merrier! And I'll try to post most of my photos with a little writing here, but probably not everyday. The blogging solidly through November and December has burned out my creative writing juices so I'm hoping this will be a gentle and fun way to ease back in. So here we go!
February 1 - Your View Today: This would be my view on many days. My huge work computer monitor, a self portrait Joe and I took while sitting out on a gorgeous July night waiting for Modest Mouse to start playing, and the very cool calendar I got for Christmas from Joe, filled with some of his favorite Instagram photos that I took. I like this view, though the spreadsheets waiting for me on that screen make me less excited. (And yes, that is a small metal Scotty dog peering over our photo.)
February 2 - Words: I know these words are excessively trendy lately. Supposedly created as World War II propaganda to help keep British citizens calm in case of invasion or while waiting in bomb shelters, I don't know how true that is, but I love the message, the font, and the red and white. Like every other vaguely middle aged hipster in the world, this somehow hits me right where I need it. Framed on my desk at work, it reassures me daily. I also find that my clients really like it and nearly everyone comments on it when they see it. Often with a self deprecating laugh. So keep calm, carry on and smile if you can.
