I loved seeing you make pages about music! Especially the tunes you sing out loud. I hope that months or year from now, as you look back on these pages, you will smile about the tunes that made your list, and that you might even start humming along.
This month I've got nothing to show you YET. No pages made ahead of time in preparation for this crusade. Why? Because I am guilty of not being on film, at least not very often. For one, I hate it. I am not photogenic. And secondly, I'm always the one taking the pictures. So I am hardly ever IN them. But regardless how we feel about having our picture taken, we need to do it. We need evidence, at least annually, that we were here. Right?
This holiday, take pictures, then hand the camera over to someone else and get in on a few. Don't leave them in the camera - get them printed! Pass them out....or at least get one or two put in your journal (or if you are too busy to make a page at least post some on your blog). Evidence.
Last year we did a family photo for our Christmas card after years of sending the "kids only". We got more compliments than ever. People like to see you. Get on film.
I'll be back later in the month with proof that I did it. Let's all do it.
EDIT: 12/30, I got it done. I scrolled through photo files from 2011 and found myself in some of them. Not as many as I should have. I think of some of things I did this year, and people I was with, and I have no record of it. Sure, we have memories, but nothing brings it back like a photo...even if it isn't the best shot. Now I need to print all of these out and put in my journal, along with the stories that go with them. I hope that even if you don't participate in this crusade that you still have an awareness of how important it is to get in FRONT of the camera. So here I am...
