before the shadows
fall into place
silver threads …

#The100DayProject is a global art project encouraging everyone to participate in 100 days of making. It starts on April 2nd, 2019.
“The great surrender is the process; showing up day after day is the goal. For the 100–Day Project, it’s not about fetishizing finished products—it’s about the process.”
For details about the project take a look here
Briefly:1—sign up for the newsletter. 2—find and follow the facilitator on Instagram . 3—choose a theme: you commit to be engaging with it every day and posting on Instagram the result. 4—announce your project on Instagram. Tag your announcement with #The100DayProject so that all of your posts will cluster together, and you can find easily the other participants’ posts.
2019 will be my second year. Last year, for my theme I chose: #100daysnewthings. Each day, I searched for, and found, something new to me. ‘It’ may have been an interesting quotation, a piece of information, a discovery or re-discovery, a haiku or other poem, something I hadn’t noticed before…
It proved to be a challenge but also a blessing. The practice expanded my curiosity, widened my horizons. And not long after the project finished, I discovered felt making! Half of this year’s theme: #haikufeltings. A felting with a haiku every day for 100 days!
It is not going to be easy, and it may take me longer, but I am ready for the challenge. I know it will benefit my creative practice, it will feed my muse . . .

A hot, humid day. I’m looking at cooling photos like this one from a visit to Wells-next-the Sea, North Norfolk.
There’s always a cooling breeze there. I can almost feel it. A sort of teleportation…
waiting for the tide
that’s not waiting for me—

the plastic rose blooms
I took this photo not realising the flowers were plastic! But then I had enough time afterwards to discover the truth…

2 challenges in one!
This is a #photo #haiga responding to the new book which includes a chapter on #haiku from the Haiku & the Brain project !

It is also my book cover for day 2 of the book cover challenge! I accepted the challenge from Shrikaanth Krishnamurthy to post covers of 7 books that I have read! No explanation, no reviews, just the covers. Each time I post a cover I’m expected to ask 3 of my friends to take up the challenge as well.
I know that this is a difficult request, as not every friend likes challenges, and even those who do, find it difficult to finish all challenges…so to make it easier for everyone, I’m suggesting here if a friend likes the idea to take it up, and tag me, so that I follow their book covers…
