The Daily Post Photo Challenge this week is “Fresh” and I thought I’d snatch the opportunity to provide proof that I actually finished one of the projects on my “Do Before the Move” list. I purchased this hideously painted small chest of drawers at the local auction in the winter. This week, I finally got it sanded and painted, and traded the dinky little wooden pulls for some pretty bakelite knobs I found at an antique fair. Now it’ll have a fresh life as a collector’s chest, holding my shark teeth, ammonites, and sea shells, plus all the other little treasures that regularly find their way into my pockets whenever I go for a walk.
I want to be a writer, yet Henry David Thoreau's cautionary words echo in my brain: "How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live." Knowing I have promised to blog daily for the coming year, I am committed to living the next 365 days to the fullest by seizing new opportunities, making old routines less mundane, and immersing myself in the details of ordinary situations. Building these habits will be key to convincing myself that I can legitimately sit down to write a future bestseller!
