Sandy: What writing this blog has forced me to do is focus on one thing for a sustained period of time and that is posting on a blog everyday. Seems simple, right? No, not so simple. Posting something everyday means planning, especially when two people are involved. It’s imperative to have a discussion or brainstorming session about twice a month which takes a couple hours out of one’s regular schedule. I was clueless about the time commitment when I proposed the project to Kelly. Over the last four months, staying on task, especially when established day-to-day life must come first, has unveiled Kelly’s true character and her integrity when it comes to commitment and work. I am grateful for every day she stays on this adventure with me.
As we go forward, one foot in front of the other, almost a third of the way through the year, we continue to be challenged with subject matter, images and things to say but the discoveries have been eye opening. Regardless of whether we are using more of our brains by using our less dominant hands, we certainly are stimulating our brains.
Sandy’s year long journey – going from being a right-hander to left-hander, and Kelly’s parallel trip as a left-hander doing things as a right-hander.
