Mission #100: Celebrating this moment in time

November 21, 2011

What better way to commemorate our 100th mission together than by celebrating you and your lives?

Remember a few weeks back when I invited you to call and leave a message describing your moment in time? 

For those of you coming to this new, I've included the text of the original post below, which I began this way:

It's early morning.  The kids are just off to school. The feel of their skin is fresh on my hand.  I'm a few sips into my first cup of coffee.  The house is quiet, still.  I have not yet brushed my hair. I'm surrounded by a sea of Post-it notes, a different thought/idea scribbled on each. I hope I can weave them all together in just the right way.

This is my inner/outer snapshot of life-at-this-exact-moment. What's yours?

And remember my promise to then assemble your messages in video form? 

Well, here is that video.  

I think you'll discover some reoccurring themes - and feel, as I did, a connection to these faceless soft voices.

I hope you enjoy it,

amy
 

 

ORIGINAL POST

It's early morning.  The kids are just off to school. The feel of their skin is fresh on my hand.  I'm a few sips into my first cup of coffee.  The house is quiet, still.  I have not yet brushed my hair.  I'm surrounded by a sea of Post-it notes, a different thought/idea scribbled on each.  I hope I can weave them all together in just the right way.

This is my inner/outer snapshot of life-at-this-exact-moment. What's yours?

Call and leave me a (short-ish) message about your inner/outer snapshot...what's in front of you, what's on your mind, what's on your plate (breakfast plate or figurative "life plate")...whatever spills out is what you were meant to say.  You can state your name - or be totally anonymous.

I will then make a video for us incorporating all the messages as the audio track.  It'll be nice to hear everyone's voices.

I see this as a way to preserve a brief moment in time, yes.  And as a way to get a wee glimpse into one another's lives, yes.  But most of all, as something that this quote from my friends at Coudal Partners touches upon:

"I'm not writing it down to remember it later; I'm writing it down to remember it now."
