The kitchen birds are unadorned. Their necklaces of Christmas bells are tucked away. Start of a new year. Quiet time after the calendar filled holidays. The classic time for contemplation; for formulating new goals for the coming year.

A snapshot a day seems like a reasonable goal. A little reminder of a moment in time that would otherwise be lost in the blur of activities on any given day. I can’t always find the time to sit down at my computer and write, but I can reach in my pocket to grab my phone and capture a picture that interests or moves or delights me. Over time, these individual snapshots could form a collage of 2020.

I actually started this project on New Year’s Day and have been thinking about how to organize the pictures. Currently thinking about a once a week “Week That Was” posting of collected snapshots. And if a particular picture calls up a poem or reflection, I’ll cull it from the pack and single it out for attention.

For now, let’s just call this a work in progress.
