This is my 101st post! Woohoo! To mark this milestone, I plan to not only listen to the Depeche Mode album of the same name, but I also joined the Day Zero Project.

I will also Tweet each one – you can follow me at @lifeafternormal. While I am guessing I will capture most photos on my iPhone, hopefully I will take my old Nikon D70 DSLR out a bit more often. We’ll see where this goes! Continue reading
