The 2012 Countdown: Day 1
Like many of you, I participated in Susannah Conway’s The August Break – which for me was a month of few words and an image a day.
I so enjoyed that experience that I have decided to do something similar in this last month of the year. And so, today I embark on my 2012 countdown – marking the final 31 days of my third 365 Project and a special celebration of the upcoming holiday season – a kind of virtual advent calendar.
I don’t have much in the way of expectations for this countdown. I hope to end the year with those final 31 daily images. In three attempts, I have never attained perfection in my 365 Projects – there have always been a handful of days, including this year, when the camera stayed in its bag. But I am letting go of any disappointment over missed days and instead celebrating the hundreds of daily successes.
This will also be a quiet time to reflect on the year that has passed and to anticipate the year to come.
So here we go – counting down the final days of 2012!
