I really do want to switch this back to journal mode, with actual words and everything. A month or a year from now I'm going to look back and regret not having recorded May and June. The conception of The Starkeeper, for example. Or thoughts on Jeff Nichols' brilliant Take Shelter (2011) and Midnight Special (2016). Or watching Mars from the floor of the front parlour. I'm afraid the whole photograph-a-day experiment/stopgap thing is leading me astray, away from the self discipline that has kept this blog alive since 2001, and I need to put my foot down.
