things that inspired me today: little storefronts around town. painted newspaper boxes. intriguing things in store windows. stuff on building walls.
an impromptu rapid photo session with #1. i don't like having my picture taken but she loves taking photos so after a few attempts to dodge the shots i gave in. we traded cameras and took as many pictures of each other as quickly as we possibly could. (if you're ever stuck for inspiration, spend an hour with a five year old.)
more friday inspiration: a messy art class with #2. an evening out with my family wandering around town. a four minute appearance at st. john's mexican fiesta. chaotic dinner at ingredient. walking down mass street. bumping unexpectedly into friends throughout the day. trip to kinko's for jared's new passport photos. chasing fireflies and bunnies. "moonrise" by nitin sawhney. the progress of a street being returned to brick. thinking about the letter #1 wrote me, unsolicited, thanking me for making her breakfast. and - the perfect way to end the day - a big fit of little girl giggles.
