#The100DayProject is about the process of creating. It's about choosing an action that you will show up for everyday, make something new, and then most importantly ship it out into the world (via Instagram). No time for procrastination or perfection!

My motto for the year has been 'nourish to thrive' and I have been falling pretty short on consistently doing the things I know I need to do. It happens, but it was time to hit the re-start button. Spring is here in Maine (well almost) and it is time to ramp up the time I commit to outdoor play and moving my body. When I do this, I know life just flows and I have energy and space to create.
When information starting swirling on my feed about the next round of #The100DayProject, I decided this was just what I must do. Then the questions began. Can I really commit to this? Is now really the right time? What would my project be?
Photography is typically my medium of choice, but saying that I would take a picture everyday did not feel body centric enough to me. It also was not getting me very excited. It was feeling like more of the same, a same that was not really working for me at the moment. I wanted simple and physical. I wanted my project to feed my craving to slow down, move and create in the natural world, reconnect to the simple pleasures of life. Words like body, space, movement, create, outdoors, minimal, and raw were bouncing around.
Then, like most things, when I was not really focused on thinking about it, it clicked. See if I can find film for my Polaroid 360! Last I had heard the film was likely being discontinued. I was thrilled to find that film was available. I had my project!
