In a chapter you did not write

Life sometimes feels like a story you did not imagine. You never dreamed about it. You didn’t lie on a cool grassy knoll and predict it with a breezy whim. The people in it–you don’t know them; they’re strangers to you. And yet, because it feels so unfamiliar it is also euphoric because you have no expectations. It is already wonderful. There is nothing to change. Not a single hair.


I am going to record this ‘chapter’ of my life by taking an Instagram from the same spot for 52 weeks. I chose this spot because even in winter I will know to frame the picture between these two trees. So pardon the chain link fence but it has to be done.

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve written. The whole ship (aka my life) had to be turned around and go in another direction. Lots of waves.

  1. Can’t wait for the next chapters, dear Mags. Write on!

  2. I think it’s a fantastic project! It would be very interesting to see how everything changes and remains the same at the same time…Write on!
