Five Ten Fiftyfold

The 100 Day Project Day 2: “Five Ten Fiftyfold”. I’ve often found moments of calm when I listen to Cocteau Twins. Their music saw me through some challenging times in the mid to late 90’s.

The 100 Day Project

As I’ve been struggling a bit lately with a few things: Figuring out what to blog about, finding time for myself to think, finding time for myself to *not* think (e.g., meditate), and having a consistent creative outlet.

This prompted an idea to participate in The 100 Day Project, which is described as “A free, global art project that anyone can participate in”. Participants are encouraged to post daily within a theme of their choosing.

I’ve chosen #100daysofcalm as my project, in which I will post short videos of a calm moment in my day. I really like the idea of taking a moment every day to focus and contemplate, and I hope this project helps this to become new habit.

I’ve kicked off the project today with my evening moment of calm:

What’s Your Name, Man?

A dramatization of recent events:

Dad, paying for lunch with cash: “Quick, tell me, who’s on the 10 dollar bill?”

Me: “You mean the ten dollar founding father without a father
Got a lot farther by working a lot harder
By being a lot smarter, by being a self starter…”

Dad: ”Okay, Okay”

New home

After lots of back and forth, I’ve finally finished migrating web hosts, setting up my new domain name, and transferred all my content. Please roll out the welcome mat for my blog’s new home at courtney.blog!

Also of note: I’ve migrated my food blog to Courtney’s Bar and Kitchen, take a look if you’re interested in seeing all the food I cook and consume.

A blogger’s work is never done, though. I’m still continuing to edit tags, categories, fixing broken images, etc. But now that the most challenging part of the migration is behind me, I’m hoping to be posting here more often now.

As a long-time blogger, one of the ongoing issues for me is being self-conscious about my past content, and dare I say, about the person I used to be. I look back at some of the old entries I wrote, and sometimes I don’t even recognize the person who wrote them.

But then I think, that’s all a part of who I was, and those experiences led me to who I am today. So the content stays… for now. And the beauty of this being my blog is that I can always change my mind about that later. 😉
