It’s the 4th Tuesday of the month and that means it’s time to join up with Carolyn and share how I’m doing with my 2021 One Little Word: Create.
The prompt this month for One Little Word was on photography. Specifically, creating feelings through photography. Now, I take a lot of photos. Even though I’ve let go of the Project 365 thing I still take a photo just about every day. Sometimes they are good and I share them on Instagram and other times they are just for me. When I considered how I wanted to use my photography to create feelings, though, I decided to use the photos I took back in April for the Pieces of Us project.
I chose 5 that created feelings I wanted to embrace. Hope, Trust, Engaged, Strong, and Joyful. I used my Polaroid Zip to print out 2×3 sticker photos and I put each one on a different 4×6 piece of cardstock and wrote a few sentences about why the photo made me feel a particular way. It was fast and easy, the way I prefer documenting this project to be, but the thought and emotion that went into the whole process was definitely not fast. Or easy. And that’s just the way I prefer that part to be, too.
My journey with create is feeling very good right now. Grounded. Purposeful. Satisfying. It’s been a good word so far.
