Motionless Chaos

Day 294/366

Get up, walk Bob, run ... am I dreaming? Am I kidding? Fact of the matter is that today was spent sitting on the couch hunched over the laptop churning out copy, pulling together piles of information for grant applications and dealing with photo shoot locations going south. Bob the Bull Terrier is with me. Come 9pm I'm still on the couch, hunkered over the laptop and still wearing the clothes I rolled out of bed in at 7am. Bob stays with me, loyal … quiet. He is good company.

Today is day 294 of 366. Time is bending and weaving. It stretches in every direction while remaining perfectly still. Is there such a thing as motionless chaos? If you're thinking that this is a bad thing I would beg to differ. It is what it is and I'm learning to bend and stretch with it. Being still is an issue. Always has been. Still and I are like oil and water. I am just not wired that way. It's 10pm. Time to get moving and shoot the days show.

This project is amazing in more ways than I am able to go into while sitting on the tram writing with my phone and without my glasses! Tonight the project gives me respite from ... myself. I'm grateful.

As 2016 was a leap year Zo photographed each of the 366 days, successfully completing her project on 24 February 2017. Zo's book The Damage Report, released in August 2017, celebrates the successful completion of her 365 Day Project. Find out more here.
