(week 11) When You Become Invisible, Do You Still Have a Shadow?

I wondered today what it would be like to know that you only had one year to live. I would like to stop floating through my life and start living it.

I have decided to try to post one polaroid a week for a full year, from this birthday until my next birthday.

These 52 photos will be a diary of my life this year, I hope that there will be change, adventure and joy. Each picture will be meaningful to me. It will document either an event in my life, or just what has been in my head or heart that week. Hopefully you will like some of them.

Let's see what happens.

    I think one a week is much more viable than one a day which I admit I am finding hard to do... I like the concept of each week being meaningful and if you did have only one year to live what would be of most importance in that period of internal focus...I too look forward to what images come from your process of living in the moment

    This is such an amazing idea, Penny. I know I certainly turn around and say where did my day....days....week....year...go? I think most of us are so tied up with all the little parts of life that we really forget to actually live!! I know this will be a mind blowing and thought provoking already have me thinking! ;)
