A month to play, a month to learn - THE ALBUM

Getting an album done
is pretty much like getting 
recovered from flu.
(I literally just recovered
from a bad flu eventually)

You did all things you knew 
to get done with this flu a.k.a
this album,like drink a lot,
sleep a lot, eat vit.C, stay out
from the kids, and no cold drinks.
For this album, I dug a lot
of my stash of word stickers, 
rummaged a lot through my 
almost-used-up Thickers
for the number of each day,
like these...
(oh, I love this part!)

and of course,
drink a lot, and stay out 
from the kids a lot
also help to finish the album.

For the album cover....
I was so glad to find some title,
(for the words PLAY and LEARN,
which are the key words here)
furtively buried in my treasure
for oh-help-me-God I don't know
how long.

Then the other things
just serendipitously fall into place.

Inside the album were pretty much
done when the month's ended
because we filled it every day.
I already reported about it here.
So all I had to do
was sticking all the 31 pics
and the numbers for the day.

I am grateful,
Oh, dear Lord,
for these recorded gratitudes

for these lessons learned

for these stories recorded

for the simple happiness

and for the treasured moments 
caught by camera

I am grateful.
For the whole month of play & learn.
For a gratifying journey
to record what is really matters.

And looking at the finished album,
just the same feeling inside
after you get recovered from flu.

i agree with Colette.. i can't say a SINGLE word.. am just too stoned looking at your album..
