006/365 - Noah received, from a good friend, an official Redskins helmet with some signatures from the 2009 team. He was so happy!

I have always had the dream of writing a novel. Not sure where it came from, but it has always been there. The fact that a novel represents a creation of my mind, shaping a story to my vision and ideas has always been intriguing.

While that dream still seems very much out of reach (work, family, other priorities), I wanted to start writing something. Turns out, that something is going to be posts on Micro.Blog for now. I figured starting small, and trying to develop a routine of writing a few words on a regular basis would be the best approach for me. Over time it may (or may not) develop into an opportunity to write longer pieces. If it doesn’t work out or I can’t commit the time to write a long piece, I can take solace in the fact that I took some initial steps to improve my writing and expand my skill set.

003/365 - A beautiful sunrise this morning. I liked how the orange light played off the steam from the incinerator on this cold morning.

Being a fan of the picture-a-day posts by some of the people I follow on Twitter and Instagram, I am going to give it a shot in 2018. I hope to learn more about taking pictures with my iPhone 8+, and to slow down and enjoy what’s around me throughout the day. So tomorrow, picture 1.
