ok...so the title was a bit melodramatic, but it's the truth, no? If we aren't busy living our lives what are we doing exactly? Waiting? If so...for what? I'm not a very patient person so waiting does nothing for me. What I love so much about Ali's WITL project is that it helps me to focus on actively living. It is an interesting thing that happens when you decide to document your life. You begin to see the tiny everyday fragments that make up the landscape of your existence. In so doing, you find yourself very much aware of the living part of life.
Documenting artfully is not for everyone, but whether you do it with a camera, an instrument, a paintbrush or some paper and glue...I encourage everyone to take a week any week and observe yourself. Tell your story and live...live your heart out.
