‘Look to this day’

Creating a text that reflects an established family.

As every owner of an incomplete photograph album knows, capturing a whole family in time isn’t easy. Everyone is everywhere, increasingly so as they get older in the modern world and everything seems to be in a state of constant flux. Finding your centre in such a day-to-day reality can seem unlikely. I can help.

A Your Three Days commission can create a unique text that captures all your family means, how important it is and everything you want them to be sure of.

I might ask about various aspects of family life, from a range of perspectives. We may involve a select few people in our information gathering or a wider group of contributors. We might take a range of different structural approaches with our text, depending on the nature of your story so far as a family. There are so many individual ways we can make this a perfect fit.

The final edit may make you all laugh, it may reassure, it may make you think…but one thing is certain, it will act as a touchstone you will cherish and return to, time and again.

The ‘Look to this day’ commission could appeal to families with children of any age and/or with family members near or far.

‘Look to this day, for it is life, the very life of life.’
