1460 DAYS PROJECT

The morning of November 9th, 2016, a new president was elected in the United States, and I decided to begin a new project.

I tend to lean toward pessimism, and I wanted to make a commitment which would help me stay in the light and keep me connected to myself and to loved ones.

I chose to make a photo each day to practice seeing goodness and beauty. These things are there in my life, and I want the reminder to actively look for them, each day.

Being with compassionate friends, that Wednesday morning was a balm. We were together, and I heard of a friend's mother who counseled him that one small thing we all could do now in response was to make our corners of our worlds beautiful.

These are some selections from this ongoing project.
