a chronicle of 2008, the year of change

I've made a commitment. To myself. To do my best to see the mundane and catch it in my proverbial butterfly net, eventually transforming it into a treasure of sorts. I've signed up for Project 365.

My intentions are simple - to chronicle the last six months of our lives here in Mexico, and to provide you - and the future old lady within - a glimpse of what daily life in my 26 year-old skin was all about. Because, as Ali so eloquently stated, blogging shouldn't be the art of word-smithing around real life. It's about community and friendship. And like any dear friend, I would want you to have an un-latched window into my world, be it fascinating, boring, thoughtful, ugly, stunning, hilarious, or pensive.

I'll keep you abreast of my comings and goings every few days. Let me begin by telling you how cold it was this morning when I got in the car to drive to school ...

Lovely photo! I tried to do the 365 days self-portrait project last year. "Tried" being the operative word -- I made it just past 200 days. I may have to try project365 this year!

I am learning so much more about my life than I'd ever expected to from this simple act of a photo a day.

Love your take on it as a gift for the future old lady within. That's going to stick in my mind

hi, I've been a lurker here for some months now. You have an inspiring blog. A couple of days ago, i decided to document the everyday by a photo a day for 30 days, inspired by http://lostintransition.typepad.com/bellablue/ and http://soulemama.typepad.com/soulemama/. I didn't knoe this was a 'thing' until I read it here, and I think I'd like to go for the 365. Is there a place where you sign up, like a list, or you just decide for yourself to go ahead and do it?

OK, I'm motivated! I'm doing project 365 too!
