Monthly Creations - Expressions Over Time

Time measurements.
The same sight seen through various points in time.
The same process preformed with varying moods and emotions and gained experience.
Life takes its own course.
Some of our paths we pick to go down, under trails, we are naturally guided through.
It's a mix.
How can one capture the moment, that time in space, where you are right now.
and where you will be in the next month and year later.
We grow, we change, morph, become enlightened, aware.
Experience rocks!

I came up with this today.
Check it.

Is there something you can do, create, monthly?
On the last day of the month

take a photo of the same location, outside your window, yourself, pet, your outfit
write about what is on your mind
make art
write a haiku
note what music you are listening to
jot down your latest purchase

pick something and start it today, it's the last day of the month

you could then take your month's worth of sameness and make a calendar for your self or give it to others
you could repeat the process for the next year on top of what you did this and measure your growth, changes

have fun with this

Enjoying This Rainy Day

Living in Southern California, a rainy day is a unique experience. We don;t get much rain. I like it when we do. Mood. The cool, crispness of the air, a feeling of fresh, negative ions sit well with me. Been indoors, doors, windows open, soaking it in, ahhhhh.

IMAGES: Goggle images
STYLE: Wet and reflective
MS. SMART: Bumpershoots and spattered windows. Shiny pavement, green green grasses. Washing off my world. The mountains covered in purpley mist and mysterious, somewhere there is a dragon flying.
QUOTE: "Don't threaten me with love, baby. Let's just go walking in the rain." -Billie Holiday and "Right as rain."
MUSIC: Seems Radiohead is the perfect musical background for a rainy day
