WHAT: This Body of Work is a thing-a-day type project. The goal is that for every day of 2012, the blog will feature a photo or image accompanied by a short bit of writing (poem, sentence, flash fiction, grocery list). The plan in will change from month to month (I’m kind of making it up as I go along… Shhh, don’t tell).
- JANUARY: An image of some part of my body, accompanied by words.
- FEBRUARY: I’m participating in the Month of Letters Challenge, and thus I will be writing and sending something in the postal mail every day. Here, I will probably attempt to capture some small part of that process daily.
- MARCH: I’ve decided that for March, I will be using music as the inspiration for poems. It might be a lyric, a title, an essence, a musical sensibility.
WHY: I’m interested in capturing an entire year in these smalls flashes of insight, these bits of images and words. I’m also interested in exploring the body (especially the 40 year-old-body that I live in) in a detailed, yet completely spontaneous way. And to see how that makes me feel, how it makes others feel, and how the process changes me (or doesn’t) over the year.
