One moment each day

What did you do today that made it special? What will you remember about today in a week's time, next month, next year? And can you remember what was special about this day last year... last month... even last week?

Some days really do turn up special and untypical events that are easier to remember. Maybe you keep a diary that'll help. But I'll bet even with a diary it'll be hard to get a real feeling of what made any particular day special and different from all the other days. Shouldn't every day be special in some way? How sad if, from a lifetime of experiences, only a relatively few hazy memories survive.

I've been thinking about this problem for some time. Earlier in the year I posted about ephemeral texts and up to August I managed to faithfully archive all the texts I sent and received. But then I got tied up with our local flower & produce show and quickly found myself several hundred texts behind. It seemed a lot of tedious effort to record the occasional special text, surrounded by others that were repeated each week.

One of the blogs I enjoy reading is Mind On Medicine, and the posts on 365 Days in (Mobile) Photos got me thinking. That's it! With mobile phone cameras being so good these days and always accessible what a great way to remember one special moment from each day and describe it.

So that's how the new blog site One Moment Each Day started up. You can access it directly by bookmarking it, or there's a link to it on the right. It'll be updated every day other than when I'm away on holiday. There's the usual touch of humour on most days... but the aim is to pick out something special from every day of my life from now on so I can easily look back on it when I'm too old and doddery to do anything else.

If the idea fires your imagination and you'd like some help on how to set up your own blog to do the same thing leave me a comment on One Moment Each Day or use the Contact Me tab above.


  1. This is a great idea. I think I will try to remember one moment from each day that is special, maybe in a journal. Thank you for the inspiration.

  2. Glad you like it Kathy. I do it via a blog since it's much more accessible... I've got lots of old diaries from years past but hardly ever read them. My family in Scotland can also see what I'm up to. And sometimes including links is really important for background.
