In October 2010 I tried a writer’s experiment: write a post a day for 40 days.
With little knowledge of WordPress (and before WP’s PostADay had launched), I was a single mother raising my six-year old son, seeking the profound in the mundane. Sharing some snippet of the every day, I posted my Daily Chronicles to be filed among the Archives.
After the 40 days were up, I continued on. Eight years and over 1,000 posts later, For the Archives offers an exploration writing, art, photography, parenthood, nature, love and life.
Chronicled here are disappointments and heart-openings. Grade-school spelling tests and poetry. A love affair that led to marriage. Lots of photographs from my kitchen.
Threaded throughout is an intent to share the details with honesty. Stay ever-curious. Find connection.
In honor of sharing love, beauty, and the art of a good, old-fashioned letter, I’ve begun to sell photography note cards at my Etsy shop, Love Letters Press. The images highlight the art of the ordinary on 5×7 cards, handmade on recycled paper. You can visit the shop here.
For the Archives beams out to you from a small speck in the Pacific, from which I send aloha and wishes for peace.
Life is an art, so make your masterpiece. Thanks for stopping by.
