It’s my birthday.
Sunday, October 16, 2022:
Before 7am: It’s my birthday, and I’m waking up to a totally new momentum to my entire enterprise. Got a lot to say here, so I’m going to fill it in throughout the day. I’ll do this until the correct blogging momentum comes back—which is a big part of the resolution. But I’m also starting a different 365 Days Self-Portrait Project. This year’s current project took a different direction than how much I had wanted to get back to my original take on 365–and I like some of what was developing, especially the Social Media Art posts that crop up—but I want to get back the original wanderlust & city adventures take I had way back in my 2006-2007 process. It was a joint effort that added self-portrait art to my blog writing.
Spotify playlist (1 song per day) to celebrate JillWrites Relaunch Year.
…and birthday playlist for myself:

9: Totes did accept birthday drink from Starbucks. Also here’s a return to reflection self-portraits. Parking lot & blue skies for today. (Set is going to be on Flickr.)
11:30am: And now to get re-used-to my MacBook Air being a regular tool for my daily process. I have to tell you all how much work I’ve gotten done on iPhones over the past decade. (iPhone process was a large part of my independent writing, photography, video work while in the MFAW at SAIC—I’m also available to instruct a workshop class on that.)
5:15pm: MANY PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME: WHICH SNEAKERS ARE YOU WEARING FOR YOUR BIRTHDAY, JILL.
8:30pm: Getting writing started for tomorrow.
