The Art of Observation continues to be an experience that lives in me all the time. Though there are moments that are busier and crazier than others, still there is an inner me that listens, watches, and hopes for all things observable.
This project was part 2 from our week 2 assignment. It was the anticipated portion of our anticipation observation.
I chose my daughter's 13th birthday to be what I planned for early in the spring, and then what was observed by way of this memory file later in the spring.
It was a wonderful exercise.
This particular memory file started with a Cavalini file, and then I added another file to it using Teresa Collins papers. This file allowed me to have a mini to show off the decorations. Then the bottom flippable book was our family and friend party. This really allowed me to focus on the 13 year old and truly capture who she is right now. Then the mini file is home to her cards plus photos from her friends and her at the pool the next day.
Sigh...I love these files every time I look through them. So, so thankful I took this class. It lead to such a wonderful collection of stories I might not otherwise would have captured.
Now...is there a story out there you have not told yet?
Go. And tell your story.
