(I mean, we aren’t going to confuse it with “Ash Tuesday,” or “Ash Sunday,” right?)
Lent 2022 begins today, so today gets a Rule! Now, I have a habit which is becoming a problem. Whenever I feel gratitude, I want to record it so I don’t forget it. Whenever I feel curiosity, I want to record it for further study and consideration. This typically results in hundreds of photographs and videos every day. The storage required by my lust for life and learning is starting to cost me a pretty penny, so here is my Lenten rule this year:
For each of these theoretically, symbolically, not-strictly-literally 40 days of Lent 2022, I will not take more than 40 photographs. (See following details for more.)
- Equivalencies: [ 5 second of video == 1 photograph ]; [1 live photograph == 2 photographs]; [ 1 panoramic photograph == 4 photographs ] (Screenshots do not count.)
- Days are non-transferable: I am not permitted to justify the use of more than 40 photographs of credit for any single given day of Lent 2022 by using less than 40 photographs of credits on any other day or days of Lent 2022.
(Today I used up 38 photograph credits, and for me, this was hard.)
