New Motivation

I would like to remember to post more and especially post more photos.  Or maybe it's less of a matter of remembering and more a matter of finding or having the motivation to take a picture, upload it and write something about it.  In New York, interesting things were going on around me on my way to work, and since I didn't drive I had lots of time for observation.  Although I love love love Denver, that's one thing that I do miss.  But I'm pretty sure I can still have it, I just have to make the effort.

So I'm trying to figure  out what sort of goal I should set for myself. Whether it should be a post a day for a month or a picture a day for a year or maybe something less ambitious, like a post every other day.  One thing I like about that is that it does motivate me to go out and observe the world a little. To take note of the funny little things going on around me.  Yesterday I went to Wal-Mart and I saw an amazingly large number of Disney shirts on adults.  Including one that said "It's all about the attitude"  I was a little confused about why that was paired with a picture of Tinkerbell. I guess she has attitude.  I also saw a Santa ride by on his motorcycle with a dog in a cage in a Santa suit on the back of it.  I'm still not sure whether the dog was stuffed or real.

I need to wake up and pay attention to the things around me a little more.  "participate in life" as someone I know once said.


  1. You could always attempt the 365 photo project. I am considering it for next year although i am horribly unsuccessful at things like that.

  2. Participating is for nerds, apathy is where it's at.

    As for actual suggestions; you could take it slow to start, post on specific days (I started my blog by posting the the 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st). Don't sacrifice quality for quantity =)
