One of the things I enjoy most about this blogging community is the unique opportunity to experience snippets of daily life through someone else’s perspective.  Some of you record and share these moments through photography while others paint pictures with your words but regardless of the format I always enjoy the time I spend looking through your eyes.  I started this blog as a project to share little views from my corner of the world and discovering this vibrant, global community of creative thinkers who share this sentiment has been a gift.  Through my friends here I can armchair travel through several countries, sit in a sidewalk cafe, visit a museum, read a humorous/sad/insightful post and fill a note pad with new ideas while thinking about the next photo of the Pacific Northwest I want to share in return.

One of my note pad ideas is a 1 Day 1 World project designed to capture daily life moments, one hour at a time, until we reach a full day.  The format is structured like the television show 24 with each hour of the day having its own week and running for a total of 24 weeks from May through October.  During these six months the Northern Hemisphere will transition from spring to fall while the Southern Hemisphere moves from fall to spring and with enough participation not only will we view a virtual 24 hour day we can also experience each of the four seasons through our global community.

I’m up for posting one hour from my day each week but the project will really only come to life if you join me.  I know many of you enjoy photography while others expertly capture moments with a few, well-crafted sentences and I think this format can work well for all of us but if you’re still unsure about how to go forward I have a few ideas below.

  • If you attend an event, movie or kids game how about a quick description of where you are or a photograph of a ticket stub.
  • A nice dinner out or coffee with a friend could be captured by a photo from your table, a review of your favorite restaurant or maybe story about how you discovered this place.
  • Describing where you are at one brief minute during the hour – waiting in line, sitting in your office or standing in the kitchen wondering if you should clean it or walk away and read a book.

I know some of the hours will be difficult to capture but this is a no-pressure kind of project and I want it to be as fun to read as it is to participate.  If you’re an early morning kind of person and don’t have something to share from 2 am  please stop by anyway and visit those night owls who find this time of day their most creative.  Your prime time will come soon and a sunrise moment might be just as interesting and rare to them as their midnight sessions are to you.

Our first hour will be 12:00 pm and you have the next week to think about it before the project opens on May 3rd.  I’ll schedule my new posts to publish early Sunday mornings, Pacific Standard Time, and they will remain active until the following Sunday for comments and links back to your posts.

Please let me know what you think in the comments below.  Does this kind of project interest you and would you check in to read other’s posts?  Ultimately, I want this to be a fun and creative community space to share our views through a day and the more the merrier!

    1. We’d love to have you and Granny join! This series will end in October but if you’d like to continue past that date until your own personal 24 hours are recorded please do. 🙂 I’ll keep my page open and would be happy to link your entries anytime.
