Of course I want to join, but - of course - its open-ended-ness felt restrictive. With no real guidelines, I didn't know what to do.
What did I want to get out of this project?
I want it to spur on my desire to spend less time on my phone in the evenings, and more time doing...something.
Eureka! There it is! My theme. In hashtag form, it is #100timesigotoffmyphoneanddidsomething. (You can follow along on my public Instagram @itsjessasiam)
Today my son and I collected various things we found on the ground while walking around: a piece of wood that came from beavers gnawing down a tree, a downy goose feather, lichen-covered bark, a rhododendron leaf, a smooth rock...and I wove them together in my small loom. Beautiful? The end result doesn't really look lovely, but the process of slowing down and admiring the objects and creating something was very beautiful.
It was a very good first step in what I hope will be a journey toward being more willing to try new things creative-wise and to discover new things in the real world. Not the digital one.
