Through hard times, fleeting inspiration, big life moments and utter monotony, we go on.
Photography helps us capture unique moments — graduations, vacations — but how do we capture the monotonous, where much of life resides? In our hearts and memories, I suppose, for however long possible. On our blogs.
There was a time I kept a journal. I remember finding it years back and reading various passages, delighting in memories of uneventful happenings — cramming for tests, burning dinner while lost in a book, dyeing my friend’s hair pink.
A myriad of everyday moments, unremarkable life snapshots; personal time I had some control over in a world full of obligations, illness, tragedies. News cycles gone wild.
The journal is gone now, or somewhere at the bottom of a box in the garage, not exactly sure. In reading it, I remember tapping into feelings of reassurance born from those very ordinary times of mental and emotional space, times captured mostly in my memories.
Do you register the uneventful moments of everyday life?
