Also in June

This month’s photo theme was a combination of “yes and” and “also.” Also was a word given to me by my friend Jason, and I was immediately intrigued. At the same time, my friend Anna’s exploration of improv got me thinking about one of its cardinal rules – to always affirm your partner’s contribution to the scene and add to it, to say, “yes and.”
My photos varied a bit, ranging from “also” (as in plural, more of) and “yes and” (as in a moment, something that hints at what’s next, that says there is a “next” at all). It’s been fun to reflect on these words. In an interview with author Margaret Atwood, she says “and” is her favorite word. “It’s so hopeful,” she says. Whether in a turned head or hand at rest, there’s always more to the story.
Here are a few highlights from the month:

I’m halfway through this year-long one-a-day project! To celebrate, take a photo of one of the words in the project (solitude, orange, partial, imperfect, higher, or yes and) and send it to me at abigail dot lzc at gmail dot com. I’ll post your interpretation of these words.
