On April 11th 2019 I announced to my Instagram world that starting on my 58th birthday (April 13th) that I would make something creative every day for a year. Yes, #createeveryday no matter what. It didn’t matter whether it is my photography or a drawing, a doodle, some writings, my own quotes or poetry, a major work of art or new podcast episode … it could be anything creative, made only by me.
It would not matter whether it was perfect or amazing or a crap-looking stick figure, a world class work of art or just average … the point was (and is) to commit to showing up right here on my own blog and also on Instagram each and every single day with something creative to share. It’s about 365 days of creative process and making stuff vs. paralyzing perfectionism where I, and so many of us, simply don’t share.
Of course I have tried things like this before, promising to post to this blog daily and have almost always fallen of track as so many of us do … but this year, it shall be different (she said), and then … my Mom died just a few days after my 58th birthday (more on my Mom in a separate blog post because she deserves an entire post dedicated to her) … so I was derailed once again.
I will get caught up on my posts over the next day or two but here is where it all began, on April 11th, with this Instagram post and with the photo of my older brother and I at the top of this page.
Stay tuned for more.
