Don’t you just love months that are 30 days long?

Zoom in on that poster, that I snapped while waiting for my coffee at Mount Currie Coffee Co. My favourite words are there:

All you need is something to pedal and a bit of persistence.

And a month that is only 30 days long.

They’re special, because there are only 4 of them in a year. (Remember the sing-song poem? 30 days has September, April, June and November…)

November gave me an opportunity to go hike in the woods every day… my own 30×30 challenge. I told a friend about it, and so she embarked on a personal 30 day art-making project, while recovering from surgery, and every day, I’d get a little piece of art in my in-box, like the best advent calendar ever. There was something about the fixed amount of time that made it do-able. About the challenge of one small thing each day, set in advance, that made it playful and less overwhelming than “changing my life, getting fit, writing a novel and becoming a better person.”

After slouching through winter with far too much desk-time and far too many deadlines, I can’t tell you how happy I am to see April. And to honour it, with a 30×30 challenge.
