Yesterday I watched this YouTube video in which Jonathan Harris, Co-Creator of We Feel Fine, Founder of Cowbird, talks about his creative life. One of his many richly imaginative projects struck a resonant chord with me.
|The Ephemera Project|
Beginning when JH was 30, he blogged once a day taking as his subject one of his photos. In addition, he would share whatever thoughts or feelings were related to the picture. (At least, that's how I understand it.) His musings could include poetry, or a part of a story, or ... well, anything. The goal was to preserve a memory. He said he stopped the project abruptly when he began to feel like an observer in his own life as opposed to an active participant.
While I have no plans to alienate myself in my own skin, I thought this would be an interesting project, though not for this blog. And not everyday! I have a blog over on my website, http://site.karenwoodward.org, where I'll be posting these odd reminiscences as well as other irreverent and irrelevant details about my life as an independent writer living in Vancouver BC.
