Pushing through my memory keeping like this has given me a different perspective on what I choose to record. It’s like I’m pulling the focus way out, and looking at the thing in terms of the bigger picture. The result is that I’m getting better at capturing the feel of the month, and noting the key events – whether they were big deals like concerts, or just parts of the important ordinary, like the first time the paddling pool came out this season.
That’s another 6×8 album all filled up. I’m going to do November and December in another one, and then start fresh in a new album for 2016. Yay!
