First time, every time is a.*

Spring Quarter, 2010
Habits are tasks, repeated.
Over and over, we
get groceries. Browse, pick, purchase.
Bag, store, squeeze, peel,
slice, simmer, taste.
Bed sheets unfolding//folding//unfolding.
Make bed, unmake bed:
laying, sweating, sleeping, laying,
Alarm — alarm set, snooze. Snooze……
Habits are patterns we weave.
In to muscle-memory.
Interrupted regularly by the first times.
Instant and incident, instants and change
Again. and over again.
*These are images from my first self-processed collection of photographs. I made each photo using a black and white film camera while taking an introductory photography class. They are from a roll of film I developed and scanned at the Shoreline Community College photo lab. This is the first and only roll of film I have developed, and sure to not be the last.
