Off the paper & into execution

Today I viewed this blogpost by my friend's sister, Rachel Thurston.




The video is touching, o' course.  But what touched me most was the following quote.


If I have any advice for other human beings out there it’s this: Record Your Life.


As soon as I read it, I thought "Doy!  I want to."  


{I just typed and subsequently deleted a whole paragraph that tried to express my feelings about blog stereotypes, posing for photographs, and what reality is.
In a nutshell, I fear trying to make my life appear glitzy and perfect.  
I don't want to turn into everything I hate about blogs.
In a tinier, pistachio nutshell, I could just change this blog to private and not invite anyone if I really wanted to stop debating what a blog is and should be every time I post something.}

MY NEW GOAL FOR THE NEXT WHILE IS:  CREATE AND RECORD MORE THINGS.
AND I FORGOT TO MENTION THAT THE GOAL IS ALSO INSPIRED BY THIS


So.  I'm not trying to capture and sum up my life.  I'm just recording parts of it.  audio & visual.  And posting things I create in an endeavor to inspire myself to create more often.  And to work on communicating ideas visually.

There.





















and





Here.

Is.

A   U   G      2   7   .   2   0   1   0





This is how I feel after 8 hours at work.
