Time to wrap up – this project is getting to its end!
What I learned from this project – well, I did carry it through from Jan 1st to December 31st – quite a feast, but that I knew I could do after the 364-1 and 12-30 project. More important, I learned that writing is not really my thing!
Many days I just wanted to create images but couldn’t because my [private] time had already been spent on writing. Will I miss the routine? Somewhere I know I will – there is a liberating element in writing simple things with no other goals than keeping track of what I did or did not do for that day.
I got something very unexpected and quite exceptional out of it, though. I discovered that what I was doing interested other too. And for that, I have to thank you all. Your presence helped me enormously when I was running on empty or did not feel like doing or saying anything. It made me look at the effort with the special attention you develop when you know you’re not only doing it just for yourself, but people may be counting on you too.
If somewhere, I guided you to give yourself two minutes of your time to reflect on your own 3 little feel-good things – all the better! I’m no one special, but I have a feeling now that there is a little bit of me in you as there is now a little bit of you in me. I thank you for that trust.
Next year I am moving back into the image format – looking forward to it actually! 52 grains of sand is the name of the project – 52 weeks, 1 crystal a week,7 variation of each crystal each week. All originating from a wonderful Japanese program called VESTA. You’re welcome to follow me there at https://jconstantblog.wordpress.com/
In the meantime, I wish you all a very Happy New Year and a productive 2017.
Good-by and thank you again for having been with me part of the road,
