i was in the middle of packing up my halloween stuff when i realized that i had not posted an spt challenge for november. isn't that how things happen this time of year? it is no surprise that on the day of halloween (not the day after mind you, but the day of), Christmas decorations had surreptitiously replaced the value-sized packages of orange-and-black clad candies.
and so we begin the procession of days, the countdown to the *perfect* holiday season. does anyone else wake up on november first, and feel like they're already behind the eight ball?
i can not think of a better way to embrace the path to the winter holidays, than to find ways to simplify. and so, we shall start here. the challenge for november is to simplify your self-portraits. each tuesday, take a self-portrait. and post it on your blog.
this month, our portraits will speak for themselves. at the end of four weeks, you will have four self-portraits that capture you in the moment. no doubt, you will be able to look back at your four self-portraits and notice subtle changes. you will remember little things about that day, just from the color of your cheeks, the play of light in the background, the gleam in your eye. what stories can you tell when you can't use words?
