Afterwards we went for a walk along the river and took photos. It was kind of a cloudy day so everything I took has a depressing quality to it.
Preita and I were talking about her 365 self-portrait project. She has been keeping it going for a few years and I’ve enjoyed it’s progression through the years. A couple of other friends have done them in the past, as well. I find the 365 days project fascinating. Each person has their own unique spin on it and I find that uniqueness interesting. I’ve toyed with the idea off and on for a few years. At times I’m repelled by the idea. There is a judgey person inside of me who thinks it is narcissistic. But then there is that other side of me that likes to explore her creative side, and that is the part of me that is interested. So five days ago I started my own 365 days project that can be found here. I’m not sure I will be able to get through the entire year. Honestly, I’m not sure I’ll be able to get through the entire month. Knowing how I am, I’ll probably get sick of myself pretty quickly.
My mom is on her way here to visit this weekend and I’m so excited to see her! We are going to a wedding reception this evening. My cousin’s daughter got married. So I’m looking forward to seeing some extended family later on today, as well. I’m planning on taking her to the Japanese Gardens tomorrow. Hopefully the nice weather will hold out for us.
