In late December my friend Julie and I were talking about what we wanted to accomplish and try in 2012, we both named renewing our creative spirits as a big priority and desire. In one short conversation we decided to support each other in our goals and do a weekly photo blog. One photo a week, each month would have a new topic, and by years end we wanted to have a story. Thus, week:month:year was born. Julie is an Associate Editor for the Daily Kitchen at the Huffington Post, she joins me in the ranks of not having a full-time job as a photographer. We are friends because we made individual decisions to attend graduate school at the same place at the same time. Without that decision about life direction I never would have met Julie R. Thomson, I am so very happy we both decided to pack our bags and head to Athens, Ohio in the fall of 2006.
Julie teaches me to enjoy daily life, to laugh about small things, to relish moments others over look, and to never forget life is a journey, and that journey should be fun. Julie has many goals and desires, but she isn’t about to lose a day of enjoying life in hopes of one day being able to gain something more. If we spend our days always reaching for something more, than what are we stepping over during the charge to the top?
Week, Month, Year, I invite all of you to look in and see what Julie and I come up with during the next 40 something weeks. Our rules are simple: each month has three words to describe what should be photographed and each week we must post a photo in the vein of those three words. That ends the rules. We strive not for greatness or awards, we strive to regain our creative self and reach inside our souls daring to ask, “what’s next?”
