I thought I was ready for this year's 12 on the 12th challenge -- that is, taking 12 photos on the 12th of each month, and putting them together in a layout.
I had a reminder on my calendar and in my planner. I packed my point-and-shoot camera in my bag last night, making sure that I'd have it on hand. I ran through a list of possible moments I might capture through the course of the day. I was ready. I was.
You see where this is going.
At 3:45 this afternoon, sitting in traffic, finally able to sit still and think for the first time all day, it hit me: TODAY is the twelfth. Wuh oh.
I did snap twelve pics, but they only capture a small part of my day. Hopefully next month I'll do better. And to think I spent most of my day teaching my seniors about the concept of carpe diem. So much for that!
