life in a day

The other evening I had the honor of seeing the unique documentary Life in a Day. It is the project that brought National Geographic and YouTube together with a mission to tell the story of one of day on earth. Let me tell you, it was wonderful. You can read more about the concept of the film and how it was created (the idea in itself is totally inspiring) at the Life in a Day site. Once you watch the trailer and all the hair on your body stands on end, you’ll know what I mean when I say wonderful.

The points of view, the perspectives, the subject matter, the video shorts themselves; all totally unique and even still, there was a Universal cohesion, beauty, and honesty that left me feeling so grateful to be alive on this planet.

With our One Word Project wordthis month celebrating life, today I ask you to pick up your camera and capture yours in way that’s both everyday and unique. Capture a moment of your life, just as it is, that you never ever want to forget.

And be sure to visit Ali Edwards this week as she’s inspiring us to document our life all week with her Week in the Life. Talk about sweet sisterly synchronicity!

    I saw this on CBS Sunday morning and thought it was a completely awesome concept. I can't wait to see the whole thing. I have an idea for a picture of something I want to capture, but it is something that will have to wait until this evening.

    well…today was an off-day, as i tend to call it….
    goy out of bed and could barely keep my eyes open
    felt tired, sad, uninspired, incompetent
    sometimes my days are like this but i tend to forget so i keep on wondering what' s the matter with me, why does nothing feel good, why am i dropping everything and getting stains on my clothes and…and…
    and then it hits me: omigod, it' s one of those days….better tread carefully and be gentle with myself

    i read todays message and thought: capture something i want to remember…? today is filled with things i would rather forget!!!
    a minute later my little dog bonnie caught my eye
    she' s 18 years old now and i know i will have to let her go sometime in the near future
    but if i could i would like to keep her with me forever!
