Day 189/365, June 25th, 2011

The thing I didn't talk about in last night's letter is something that really inspired tonight's. This project has always been about me, about my life, my journey, my struggles. It's about my healing and my progress. But at some point it became bigger than that.

I suppose it was the moment I decided to make it public. Or maybe the moment I opened it up on flickr, or created a tumblr for it. Regardless of the moment-- it did in fact become something bigger than just me. It seems that while this project has been helping me heal, it's been inspiring both loved ones and strangers. Last night when I got home from work I had an email at my flickr account. Someone moved by this project-- I've gotten emails to that effect before, but for some reason the letter I got last night really touched me.

And maybe it's because the emotion was so vivid. Sometimes even without hearing someone's voice you can hear how much, how badly they want to hope for something better. And the basic premise of her note was that finding this project may have saved her life. Truly. I was so moved it took me quite awhile to even respond to her.

This project has been such a blessing to me. A powerful force of healing in my life, and to know the impact it's made on someone else's is really remarkable to me. The fact that my life could inspire someone else... inspires me in return.

My life has become something really remarkable. And apparently I'm not the only that thinks so.
