Apparently, my New Year is 15 January.
This mostly came about because I didn't get around to sorting out whether I wanted to do the Photo 365 project or not. I finally decided to and then it was two weeks into 2009. So, I didn't end 'last year's' resolution until today.
This does mean that today starts the next round of something. However, this will most likely take the form of proper blog entries, though there will be some photo only posts in conjunction as well. I've decided to follow the formula...rhythm...what-have-you of the liturgical year for the next 365 days. I think it will give me a better feel for what governed life back in ye olden days.
This task is actually part of 101/1001 that ybunny
and I will be doing as well. We got that sorted out last night and will be working on that together, though some of the tasks are more one person than the other. (I'll possibly get our list for that up sometime in future. I can say that one of the 101 is to start blogging regularly again.)
So, how am I following the liturgical year? I'm reading a book of days, reading/singing from the Universalis/Usualis, and using various books/websites to let me know what the church did/does on various days and how people chose to celebrate those days in conjunction with the church's calendar.
It will be pretty difficult for me to tell you all about what I'm doing everyday without giving you a three page essay daily, and I think we all know how likely it is that I'll write that much. (Unlikely, if you don't know.)
Much of what I'll do with be Catholic by default (after all, as I'm looking at mediaeval times especially there isn't anything else), but if there's something interesting in another tradition, I'll throw that in as well.
So, today is the last day of the first week of the year in the Church calendar.
