So, Silent Sundays?

A local artist is having a giveaway for some of her greeting card designs. The contest is open until tomorrow night, so check it out while you can. Her art is really awesome, and I'm a proud supporter of pimping out local artists.

She inspired me to pick up my pencil and art pad again and to start drawing once more. No reason why I shouldn't, I suppose. I find drawing relaxing and challenging at the same time, and I like trying to find another talent niche.

Today, I suspect, is going to be a nice quiet day around the apartment. I'm not one to take Sunday specifically as a day of rest, but it is a convenient day for it.

I'm thinking of starting a bit of a theme here On Top of the World, in the form of Silent Sundays. On Sunday, if I post I post only a picture of something meaningful and relevent to me. It sounds silly, but I think that by doing that I might be able to better keep my thoughts on what really matters in life, instead of the pointless little fleeting things. The fleeting things make up the moment, certainly, but in ten years from now, then fleeting things and the little moments may not matter at all anymore.

But it will be interesting to look back and see what I considered important, whether I still consider them important, and whether or not it's for the same reasons.

Now, the trick is to find my camera before I commit to this idea...

  1. I think it's a great idea. :-)

    Another blog I read (and I can't remember the name right now) does Wordless Wednesdays. She posts a single picture of something that is meaningful to her or something she just finds beautiful.

    I look forward to seeing your pictures if you do decide to commit. :-)
