two days too late

January 5, 2010

Since undertaking Project 365 first came to mind as fall turned to winter, I had been planning to start January 1 – the logical choice.  But things didn’t quite pan out as anticipated and so my photos began the first Sunday of the year, on January 3.  I like to think that this means that rather than just focus on the year ahead, I can end this experiment in 2011 (wow, that sounds far away) as a type of continuum.  Maybe that’s a stretch.  Either way, I am glad to have begun tackling this space and am excited to pursue new ideas here.  So, to begin, here are the first photos and words from Juxtaposition.

No. 364: 1/4/2010

But now things are different.  Now all the mute objects of my life
seem to tell my story, to stretch back in time, if I look closely
enough.

No. 365: 1/3/2010

When you come to something, stop to let it pass
So you can see what else is there…
One teacher,
One doctor, one ecstasy, one illness, one woman, one man
May hide another. Pause to let the first one pass.
You think, Now it is safe to cross and you are hit by the next one.
It can be important
To have waited at least a moment to see what was already there.

– Kenneth Koch, One Train May Hide Another
