from 2023 One Second Everyday


One Second Everyday of a challenging year. Tough to see all the shots of Dean, and to know that most of the year was under the spell of a job hunt.

Also I'm not doing great with the idea that I should have fewer "band splat" seconds :-D Bands consistently are some of the most reliably good parts of my life. (Though with this night job I got I'm going to be having fewer rehearsals this spring, so be careful what you wish for I guess.)

2021 One Second Everyday - my ninth year doing this project.

As usual, much tuba/band and protest stuff. New house stuff starts in February! My Sisyphus project early in the year, and vaccines shot, where weirdly I seem to be wearing the same shirt. Evidence of a lot of fun summer outings! Also many shots of Dean throughout.

For such an interesting time (vaccines! birthday! new house!) kind of a mundane second every day...

I've been cleaning up my blog's tag system, so now the 1sed tag just has the annual versions, going back to 2013...

and the whole year one second per day:

Continuing my annual (and, err, daily) tradition of one second of video footage every day.

Long year. Still lots of bands, and lots of protests.

One Second Everyday for all of 2016.

1. Man, it was a long year! The stuff at the beginning of the year seems so long ago. (Seems kind of weird I've only been going out with Melissa for a year and half or so.)
2. Arguably, there's too much band stuff :-D I mean it's important to me, and photo/audiogenic, but maybe I should start favoring less repetitive stuff...
3. I think I might start posting these seasonally rather than monthly. I'm wondering if 30 seconds is too short but 6 minutes is too long - 1:30 seems like a decent time, and I tend to think of the year in seasons anyway (meteorological not astronomical - fall being Sept Oct Nov, Winter being Dec Jan Feb, etc, not based on solstice / equinox etc)

This year I'd like to resolve to be a little more thoughtful in my speech; to just do a second of organizing my thoughts, cutting out the disclaimers (that shield be from any posibility of being *gasp* technically wrong) and not leading with the tangents (that show how clever I am).

Anyway, here is 2015, a second a day for the year...

from 2014, One Second Everyday


I'm happy with the feeling it gives me about the year; I always look for things to add to my mental grip of that kind of time frame, and reduce the feeling of it slipping away without a trace.

from January 7, 2014

So here is all but the first part of January of my 2013.

I don't know if people will find this interesting or not, but it really let me relive a year that had a lot of ups and downs.
