Good morning! Today is Friday, November 11, 2011.
Or put another way, it's 11.11.11.
Because of its numeric uniqueness (at least for another 100 years) a young lady in Australia has started the 11Eleven Project to capture and document the activities of the world on a single day. Here's a link to the about page for the organization. Participants- and it's not too late for any of you to hop on board if you're reading this on 11.11.11- will submit their photos, videos, sounds, blog entries, etc. for compilation into a world music collection (curated by Imogen Heap, no less), a photo book and a 2 hour documentary. While we harbour no illusions that Bobofeed will have any place in the final product, the thought of participating was really appealing, so here goes!
Of 11 (naturally) suggested topics around which to organize our material we've decided to try to fuse "beauty" to "routine". Routine is obviously the most accessible way to blog our way through the day, but what good is it, really, other than being a piece of mostly boring archival material? So we thought it would do us good to stop at least once during each of our waking hours to appreciate beauty in some form in what we're doing or in our surroundings, and to share that with the world.
We'd LOVE for YOU to participate with us! Please comment on any and every post-- for instance, just tell us what you're up to, or what beauty you noticed in that hour-- or e-mail us any of your own photos & we'll re-post them here on the blog.
So here goes! This initial post is programmed to launch at 1:11, 11, 11, 11, and we'll catch up with it again when we arise on Friday morning. Hope to see you then!
Happy eleven eleven eleven!
