We gave Aden his first camera yesterday, an old 1 megapixel camera of Kevin’s. He loves it! He is so engaged with it and that was before he was even shown the pictures! His work is brilliant! I need to follow him around and take pictures of whatever he does! He loves taking pictures of all the things that he sees, from his shoes to rocks to his toys to grass!
A special Happy Birthday to my hubby Kevin! Without being all mushy and gushy…..
I love you til the end of time!
I love you til the day I die!
I love you til the universe is no more!
I love you til the there is nothing but lore!
Seriously, I want you to know that I am thankful to have you in my life. I am continually amazed by your talents, skills and generosity. You inspire me to be a better person. When you are not around, my world is gray. Addicted to you? Definitely! For Life!
Taking pictures of Aden every day has been a challenge, but a good one. Not necessarily one that I succeed at every day, but there’s still hope! I recently found out about this guy, Noah Scalin, who started making something every day and inspired a lot of people to do the same. His site, MakeSomething365.com, has made me realize that I’m not alone in trying to create art and that there are lots of really great projects being made every day.
Reading about some of the artist’s work and how it impacted their lives to concentrate on everyday reminded me of a give something away every day project I started last year. I failed at that miserably. Does giving an art project away every day count? What could be more generous? Or is it even generous? Is it self-serving and selfish?
It’s definitely a lot more fun than being pious!
