notes on living a life

film || week 6

“The biggest mistake I made is the one that most of us make while doing this. I did not live in the moment enough. This is particularly clear now that the moment is gone, captured only in photographs. There is one picture of the three on them sitting in the grass on a quilt in the shadow of the swing set on a summer day, ages 6, 4, and 1. And I wish I could remember what we ate, and what we talked about, and how they sounded, and how they looked when they slept that night. I wish I had not been in a hurry to get on to the next things: dinner, bath, book, bed. I wish I had treasured the doing a little more and the getting it done a little less.”

some how i can't stop getting rid of things. . .
clothes i no longer wear, tablecloths, flower vases
(why keep them when i often use a mason jar?) 


i feel as if i am not only sorting and purging the space we live in
but also my mind. . . 
a few days ago i found a roll of film, 
not the first time i have found it, but this time i set it aside
pondering what to do with it, wondering what it might have on it

it made we think, that is all i will say
later i got on fb only to read several repost on a joke about folks
who no longer use capital letters
that also made me think . . .  

"Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace." 
— Millian Kundera
“If life was a book; every day would be a new page, every month would be a new chapter, and every year would be a new series.” 
― Elizabeth Dulvenvoorde

ps: no film was developed but i had fun post-processing these images to look like the film i remember. . .
