Memory is a way of holding on to the things you love, the things you are, the things you never want to lose.” ~ Kevin Arnold

So true, so true.

Memories are so powerful, the songs we hear, the breezes we feel, the air we smell, the things we see, they are all landmarks within our memories of days both recent and past.

When I started my 1st 365 project, I never thought about the memories I would be making when it did it. But I have to say I am so thankful for those 365 days of memories, more than any other year of my life, I can remember so much.

Like the subtitle of this blog, brief intervals of time, that is just what memories are, but they mean so much more than that. They are the markers of our lives. So take a moment and remember something small or big, your wedding day, the first house you lived in as a child, your favorite vacation spot, the day you cleared your inbox, or the best waffle you ever ate.

Go ahead, take a moment and escape. You will be glad you did.

Hank Aaron, Willie McCovey, Reggie Jackson and me.

Yep, me, you read that right. I have something in common with those guys. They all wore the number 44 and so do I this year.

When I completed my 365 project in the summer of 2009, I was thrilled, relieved and proud. But it did not take long to realize how much I missed it, so now I begin again, year 44, just me doing what I love and feel I should be doing, taking pictures……and if you are wondering why I would do it again. It is simple, because it makes me happy, after all the number 44 is a happy number. And who does not need a little happiness these days.
