day which i digress

100 ideas by keri smith::number six:
Glue an envelope into your journal. For one week collect items you find on the street.

the envelope is glued into the front of a new
journal started with this idea mission
in mind...
have also started painting the front
of the new journal
(originally a sketch pad)
and have the poem from number 5
glued in...

no photo of the envelope or the cover
because i spent the day taking photos
and by the time
i take more photos of the journal
and upload all the photos on the camera,
the day will be gone.

so instead,
i will tell you how i am feeling about this
idea so far...and the truth is?
i'm loving it.
i really find that i am getting a lot out of it...
it is pushing me in directions i may
not have thought about before...


i have ordered this book and cannot wait
for it to come in....

i can't wait to see this movie...

or this one...

and although in a lot of her songs,
i have no idea what she is saying,
i love this woman's voice...

I've said it before, but I find this SO inspiring. And... I'm thinking ahead because January is always a little blah for me. So. I think I will start your project in January. I am excited about it already. Oh, about that book. I predict you will read it with such fervor that you will feel like your head is about to come off.
