In his post this week Kevin reflected on our Chronicle journey, on how “the mediocre bubbles to the top”. We knew, going in, how much of a challenge this would be. Namely because once we all agreed to go ahead, we just flipped the switch: we didn’t choose these 90 days for any anticipated fire and fury. We’d roll with the punches, attempt to spin from the fabric of our lives, however grandiose or...mediocre.

In a couple of weeks I’ll be heading to Germany—along with Bert, Kevin and Jonas. Planes, trains and multitudes to fill our days; frenzied nights and likely much too little sleep. But for now there’s grocery shopping with Cynthia and Héloïse, whipping out my iPhone for a few uneven frames while my cameras sit at home. Sometimes your mind is somewhere else when you leave.

For now there’s grocery shopping...and that’s just fine.
