But it’s enough to begin.
It’s enough to finish.
In the spirit of my upcoming book (Spark: How to write a book with your kids–and why you should.), I’m talking with authors, artists, musicians, and … bakers.
Talking with fellow ex-pat this morning about potential project ideas and she told me about how she baked a wicked cornbread together with her two young boys.
That could be a project in itself: baking cornbread.
But as I look towards something:
- That lasts,
- That can be used (or reviewed or looked at) again and again,
- That was started and finished.
Although cornbread itself is part of the project, I’m thinking of a more “lasting” impression. Thus came along the cookbook idea.
“But we don’t have lots of recipes.”
I sensed it wasn’t going to get done as we ran into things like:
- Gloriously huge dreams,
- Photography shoots,
- Font choices,
- Comparing what an ounce is in milligrams …
See what’s happening?
It’s not going to get done.
One recipe. One book. A few (iPhone) photos. It’s done. It exists. It was that time in their lives when they made cornbread. It’s a time capsule.
That’s what I’m after.
Have you done something together with your kids you’d like to share with the world? Or at least with me? Let’s have a quick chat.
