Here’s My Untro in 2 Parts. I’ve been thinking about this challenge from its first appearance in my mailbox, considering ideas and trashing them and clicking around at the great stabs being shared on FB, Google+ Twitter and finally with some energy and peace, I moved back into Comic Life, an old software friend, and sorted out some favorite images to reflect something about me and what I care desperately about: work and love.
It’s been a crazy week almost living the first half back in Englewood Hospital with my ‘husband”, Tuvia as he used the time to come back to himself and then back home for more nursing and recharging and that’s putting it very mildly.
Next year it will mark 20 years for us without the benefit of doctors and hospitals for most of our time together but I guess it was inevitable that even the doctor couldn’t avoid becoming the patient.
I’m not sure if the timing was good or bad, but it was a great distraction to follow along as the week progressed, even participate a bit in the twitter chat.
I’ve been excited about the #CLMOOC since I watched Kevin’s first intro video for year #1. I’m not sure how much I actively participated but I did lurk. Last year a small HVWP team took on the challenge of leading a week with 5 image stories and there was a lot to do. It was thrilling to collaborate on Google Docs with my teammates, often working spontaneously with one or more at the same time. This year, while I have been personally distracted the timing couldn’t be better. July will be filled with new HVWP projects, but not just yet, so I can’t wait to see what’s coming our way next.
I think I’m feeling that this year it’s easier to jump in. Not sure why just yet.
