Celebrating after the Super Bowl with a cigarette in the fire.
I've made it through one full month of Hyperliving and am feeling good so far. An unbelievable amount of strange and mostly wonderful things happened to me in January and I can only hope that February even approaches that level of craziness. When I decided to do this project, I knew I was making a commitment to something that I wouldn't back out of, but nonetheless I feel proud that I've made it this far without hitting more than a bumps in the road.
As you may have noticed, I added the next four weeks of Hyperliving to the blog and the Google Calendar. Here they are:
Week 5, Feb 3-Feb 10: Week of Religious Studies (Sunday overlap)
Week 6, Feb 10-Feb 16: Week of Cooking Actual Meals (suggestions requested)
Week 7, Feb 17-Feb 23: Week of Daily Art Projects (suggestions requested)
Week 8, Feb 24-Mar 1: Week Without A Cell Phone
A few brief words on the above:
- Since I took yesterday off for the Super Bowl and to recover from last week, I'm extending Week 5 to overlap onto Sunday, February 10. This will now be a double-duty day, with religion in the morning/day and a meal at night.
- And on the topic of cooking, though I have some ideas in mind, I'd love to hear suggestions anyone might have for easy but nice meals that a person with limited knowledge/experience (but a lot of heart!) could prepare.
- Also, for the following week, please send me any thoughts or ideas you have for art projects I could conceivably do in a day. Obviously I'm planning to do a painting, and a friend is going to let me make something in her ceramics studio, but i'd appreciate any non-photo related suggestions that any of your art folks out there got for me
Ok that's it for now. Next up, Unitarianism.
Forecast for the Future
"Every individual without exception bears a potential writer within himself. The reason is that everyone has trouble accepting the fact that he will disappear unheard of and unnoticed in an indifferent universe, and everyone wants to make himself into a universe of words before it's too late.
Once the writer in every individual comes to life (and that time is not that far off), we are in for an age of universal deafness and lack of understanding."
