Morning, Noon, and Night
Being intentional about my time is a comical pursuit these days. I wake up early, and start moving too quickly, too loudly, too soon. The day and the evening pass in a blur of homeschooling, housekeeping, working, and living. And with the particular lifestyle we have chosen, of home education and self-employment, all these activities can happen within the same four walls.
I didn't even make it outside today.
I am still in my yoga pants from my predawn workout.
Something must give.
Oh, don't get me wrong. I do not plan to change anything concrete about any of this. But I would like to pause occasionally, at least long enough to notice what is happening in the occasional moment. Or two. Well, three, to be exact.
I think right now, during what will perhaps be my busiest season yet, I shall focus on a new project with photographs. A simple succession of daily pictures taken during the morning, noon, and night. Photographs that capture a few moments of our day. Sometimes with words. Sometimes without. Most days - but not all of them.
There is beauty in the mundane. There is life in the details. And I do not wish to miss a minute of it.
