The dog still loves walks, neighbor's Christmas decor awaits disposal, the dudes still like frisbee on the beach, math is still maddening, Big Dude still makes lots of bacon & hash browns, Mom & I went shopping, we still exercise and go to the library, we accidentally injured a lizard (he's fine) while doing yard work, Big Dude installed speakers in his "office", instead of playing card games with guests- we youtoubed, Dad bought a spiffy new car, and life commenced pretty much as per usual.
So, what will be different this time around? For one, I won't feel the "need" to grab video everyday. This doesn't have to be a "365 project". If I miss a day, or two, or twenty-two, I will experience no guilt; after all, at the end of the year, I'll still have 300+ slices of daily life. It's all good. Another difference: if I have multiple neato slices for the same day, I can throw the extras in a file and Middle Dude can add them to the end of the monthly videos. If I have a video slice that's way more perfect as 5 seconds than as 1-2 seconds? again, I will throw them in a file for Middle Dude to use at the end. So no more agonizing over choosing between videos slices and being sad about the ones ending up on the proverbial cutting room floor. And no more struggling to make the video slices short enough to fit and being sad about the portion not used. In short, 2015 will be a more relaxed, loosey-goosey project.
