deciding its fate



Year three of Where I Stand is coming to a close in a few more weeks. I'm struggling as to whether or not I will continue it for a fourth year.

Its become a ritual, a habit. I drag my camera everywhere, stare at my feet like some weirdo and take pictures of things that no one else really seems to pay attention to.

Part of me feels that the essay has run its course and that I should move on to a new project.

Yet a different part will be sad to see it go.

Totally undecided in every way humanly possible. Since you all have to stare at my feet once a week, what do you think? Should it stay or should it go?

If you want to do it, do it. If not, don't. Am I making this too easy?

well maybe it is time...if you are questioning it then maybe it is.
whichever you decide it will be all good

I like it and look forward to it, but if you feel you're done with it, how about another project? Daily self-portraits? 365 days of funny things? A year in colors?

Moving on is so bittersweet...looking forward to the new, yet wanting to stay.

I love this series, but YOU have to end it when YOU have to end it.

Hanging on to the old, no matter how good it is, can limit creativity and starting new adventures. I'd say let it go 'cause it does sound like you're ready to move on. An occasional shot of your feet would work in your "happy things" blog.

I really like them and would miss it. I understand that evolution is a necessary part of being an artist. I like Jean's idea of including and occasional one in your Happy Things posts, or may be a monthly or quarterly Where I Stand post.

Lynn The fact that you question whether to continue of not seems to answer itself. Reminds me of what my grandmother once told me about love, if you question whether or not you love someone, you don't. Maybe a funny analogy, but I think it fits.

Ask your feets if they are tired of being photographed. Mine rather enjoy it. I know readers are always happy to know that no matter how busy you get there is always an entry on Sunday, so I can't help but hope that you replace it (if you do decide to stop) with another weekly challenge.

I like the reliability of a Sunday post. You can do a different weekly thing, just to keep you on your toes.
