Thomas Hawk is on a mission to take one million hand crafted pictures in his lifetime.
Considering the life expectancy for a male in the US is 78 years old, he would have to average just over 35 photos a day for his entire life.
(It’s more, since I doubt he started this project on the day he was born.)
This is a perfect example of what a labor of love is.
Of course, not every picture Hawk produces is going to be perfect. Some of it might fail. In fact, most of it probably will.
Andy Warhol said it best, “Don’t think about making art. Just get it done. Let everyone else decide if it’s good or bad, whether they love it or hate it. While they’re deciding, make even more art.”
Our job is to produce. Each of us needs a labor of love, something that we would do whether we got paid.
Time is always running out, don’t waste another second.
[This blog is my own personal labor of love. I want to write 20,000 consecutive blog posts. At my pace, of one a day, that goal will be realized in 2060.]
