The goal of the project was to find and celebrate a new thing each day. Remember the joyful moments and share them with others. It was not a tally of successes or failures. It was a tally of the small gifts.
I decided to post a few of my favorite pictures from the project here. I think some themes develop about the spaces I find most life giving.
|The Project started at the beginning of 2nd Term when I met these crazy kids!|
|I like my laundry done. And I like blue skies.|
|Mornings are new to me this year. I find them more than a long suffering torture: I find them beautiful.|
|Gifts from Students of Bulgarian Dishes|
|Easter. People I love, good food, Resurrected God.|
|Birthday! It was awesome to have people to celebrate with me in Sofia, a city I had no idea I would come to love.|
|Tea is always better for Two.|
|Letters. One of the great joys of my year! I obviously have Writer Friends.|
|Newness. Cutting All my hair was liberating.|
|Unexpected time with a poet I admire.|
|Quiet evenings, sunsets, Bulgarian wine. I will miss this.|
