It’s March. Time for me to try something new. Literally.
At least for March (and maybe longer) I’m going to, each week, try something new. It might be something I’ve never done before, a food I’ve never eaten, a place I’ve never been, but every week, it’ll be something (with pictures if at all possible). I’m excited. And I’m up for suggestions if you have some.
I wanted to say a few words about my February project, The Secret Alphabet. It was cool.
Okay, maybe a few more words than that. I really loved doing it. I loved how, at first, it felt like there were letters everywhere, and then I realized only certain letters were everywhere – O’s and A’s, for instance. But other letters, like G’s (and C’s and D’s) were nowhere to be found. (Was so disappointed the day I wanted to write Imagine.) But I liked having to be flexible. I liked how every outing took longer than the time I had allotted, but not once did I feel bad about that.
I loved how aware I became of the places I visited, how many things I noticed, and occasionally remembered to photograph, that were not letters.
And one of the things I loved most was how many of you told me you were out looking for letters. How cool is that? And so here’s what I’m thinking. If any of you want to send me your pics (anyone, but especially those who found a discernible C, D or G), I’ll assemble them all into an alphabet pic. Neato, right?
It’s an open invitation. If you haven’t gone looking for the secret alphabet yet, I highly recommend it. Venture out, turn your brain sideways, and take pictures of what you see.
That’s it for now. Next Monday, something new. I can’t wait to see what it’ll be.
