Toward the end of year I noticed short videos popping up in my Instagram feed. What a great way to share a year in review. I began putting a short video together and then I realized that much of my year was missing.
I went back to my photos from 2013. Though I don’t deliberately take a photo a day, I do take many photos. I try to capture all that makes up my world.
As I began to put the video together I began to reflect on my year. Relationships matter to me. Place matters to me. Time matters to me. I am surprised at how much more courageous the students and I are than we ever imagined. I am in awe at how our courage is connected to place – a physical place and a storying space within – more than we ever dreamed possible.
The following is a video of only photos from 2013; Jessy Lee advised I leave out videos, this year.
Most of the photos are in chronological order. Some of the photos may not make any sense to folks who haven’t lived alongside Jess, our family or my other kids this past year, and that’s okay.
2013 was beautiful.
