2016 in review

31 December, 2016

A year ago today, I saw a friend’s video featuring one second of her life, every day, for the month of December 2015.  It was beautiful, and I was inspired to tackle a similar project of my own.  Thanks, SD!

I’ve just finished piecing all of these seconds of my life, of my 2016, together.

The weight, and the beauty, of this video is staggering.  I’m watching it again right now, and it’s amazing how these tiny clips jog memories and such a range of emotions.  I’ve had birth and death and everything in between this year.  The events and activities I picked to film were largely happy things, so this representation of life skews a bit more to the positive side, but I suppose some parallels could be drawn there.  From seeing how much my daughter has grown to the intimacy that comes with sharing so much that most people don’t see or gloss over, this project has given me more than I had expected.

If you’ve got eight minutes to spare, check it out. It’ll be posted or linked once I can iron out some technical issues.

To everyone who joined me in this project, I thank you, and I love you.  Let’s do this again real soon, yeah?
