I've been cataloging my "worthwhile experiences," as I like to call them, every day, but I've decided to switch to keeping that record digitally; there's a little more accountability, even if it's just in my head because no one reads this. So now, in addition to using LJ for the communities, I will be making a daily record of worthwhile experiences. To give you an idea of what I mean, I'm going to back up a few days:
Read a really hilarious book, Candy Everybody Wants by Josh Kilmer-Purcell.
Listened, really listened, and heard some secrets from someone's past--Amy, someone I hardly know, told me about the eating disorder she had in high school.
Socialized on the bus.
Printed photos in the darkroom.
Read a very good book, The Subway Chronicles by Jacquelin Cangro.
Photographed over 20 strangers on film and developed that film.
Drove to Illinois; big skies and beautiful scenery.
Ate amazing deep-dish Chicago-style pizza.
Shared a good book with someone else (Subway Chronicles with Matt).
Had a really good conversation with Matt about books, photography, and life.
Ate abandoned cookies and fell asleep in a park in Illinois.
...The end! Look for today's tomorrow, tomorrow's the day after, and so on.
