My "I" letter day is a post devoted to International Fake Journal Month. One day of fake journaling is better than none. "Life's so short, why only live once?" OIFJB The reference to "shift in place" means to take a quick side step out of your life and into the life of someone else, and let that someone else create for you.
The blog officialinternationalfakejournalblog describes the month as:
"What Is IFJM?
"Take on a new persona, alter ego, or be the same person you are now, except in an alternate universe. Maybe you are a cat person and always draw cats, well for April you’ll start a fake journal and just draw birds, with a passion, as if they were the most important animal on the planet. (You can of course continue drawing cats in your real journal, if it suits you.)"
"The only catch is that you need to date your entries in present time, as you complete them, i.e., April 1, 2016, 8 p.m., April 3, 2016, 4 a.m., and so on. Oh, and it has to be a self-contained journal and you need to write it as a person" (no dogs, cats, hyenas, you get the drift ....my added language)
Link to last year's IFJM post.
Not to be left out of the action, Ellen DeGeneres will be interviewing the blogging group on her show filmed in Los Angeles. We may or may not all be given new cars or $10,000 for our appearance on her show.
To round out the leg of our Los Angeles trip, we and our significant other will be treated to a stop at The Getty Center, a renowned art museum, and take one of the Los Angeles Conservancy's walking tours to see the city's top sites and most beautiful buildings, with the option to visit the California Museum of Abnormal Arts, a venue that features the best of the underground in art, music, magic, puppetry and independent film.
Pinch me, could this be for real?
