I started the 365 project on Flickr this year. I have tried to do in the past and just couldn’t get past day 3. This time I am on Day 11 and I’m still going strong. I have a lot of ideas I would like to do, but getting them to work isn’t always easy.
In addition to the 365 project, I took on another version of 365 where I take a picture a day. This was taken yesterday on our way back from Reno.
I uploaded it and fiddled around with it some and then reuploaded it. It feel sort of strange to be using my Random And Odd Flickr account and adding ‘NEW’ pictures from THIS place in my life. I had to do a search for a picture the other day and it matched a tag I had used years before and low and behold, my old life slapped me in the face.
There have been many times where I want to just delete the whole account, but the pictures I have there would need to be saved and I am nearing the 10,000 picture mark in my photostream. I can’t imagine the time it would take save all the pictures I wanted.
For Christmas I bought myself (for the 5th time) REO Speedwagon’s 2nd decade of rock and roll live CD. I don’t have a CD player to play it on in my car so when I took the car that had a CD player in it, I brought it with me. The first opening notes of Roll With The Changes brought me back to being 19 years old and bouncing along in my roommates truck listening to the song and singing it at the top of our lungs, then repeat doing it again.
I have had that song stuck in my head for nearly 24 hours and usually any song that gets stuck in my head (like Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance) for more than a few hours drives me nuts. It’s not so bad right now. I just keep hearing, “If you’re tired of the same old story…turn some pages.” Man, have I turned some pages…gone through chapters and finished many novels since those days.
I am ready to make the break that I am on the brink of. It seems like I have been doing that my whole life.
…and I have all the pictures to prove it!
