Hi, I'm Angi
Welcome to my corner of the internet! My passions include travel, photography, books, music, Japanese language and culture, Italian language and culture, and art.

Here at Abbott Lane you'll find my thoughts on these topics and much more. Thanks for stopping by to visit!


My 40 In 40 List has been slowly moving forward. Things have felt particularly busy lately, with the coming of warmer weather, organizing the Sunday Music Salons, and taking on some other projects. One of them you can find above - a 365 project. One photo a day.

I've attempted 365 projects in the past and they're actually pretty difficult to keep up with. I think the challenge is to push through the moments that you don't feel creatively inspired, and just shoot. I also think that these moments teach us more as creatives then the moments that we're overflowing with ideas. So there's that. I also thought it'd be nice to have a visual record of the year. As always, I'm looking to expand, explore and create as much as I can.

I'm also training for my first powerlifting meet. Yeah, strange I know. If you don't know me, this may seem like the furthest thing from my other interests as one could ever imagine. But lifting is something I started doing roughly a year ago, and I immediately fell in love with it. There's nothing like picking up a lot of weight to push to realize how strong you are, not just physically, but also mentally.

Maybe I'll write more about that one day - the mental aspects of lifting that have been truly meaningful to me.
