...called Rolling Change. It was meant to be a team blog, a place to have fun and bang around ideas. The idea came to me when I was reading "Living on less" in the Nov. 3rd issue of Maclean's. Later on I read about the cuts proposed to balance the City of Ottawa's 2009 budget. My mind naturally turned to the Schmidty of Creighton's 2009 budget. I had the sudden urge to open photoshop. Or maybe write a poem. But instead of posting some kind of response here, I built a new blog. Yet said nothing.
I had fun setting it up though. I was sitting here, trying to come up with a name for the blog, when H walked by. I asked him what he was up to. He said he was rolling change. Thank you, I said. I proceeded to photograph change. I tried pennies first, but they were too harsh for the header. The tube for nickels was much softer. And it turns out H has a bunch of nickels with rabbits on the back. Perfect. So there they are, running the wrong way.
Today I'm rethinking the blog. While I think another team blog would be fun, many of the people I'd invite are already stretched for time. I have a pile of work staring at me as well with a deadline fast approaching, so Rolling Change will likely sit there for a while. I might play around with the layout now and then when I'm procrastinating. I might post fiction there instead. Maybe I'll pull it down in the end. Who knows.
