Have you heard of the activity/movement to choose a special word as your own word for a year? I don’t know a lot about it, but I like the idea.
From what I gather, you select a word that resonates with you as your focus word. Every now and then through 2015 I would catch a bit of conversation about people’s words for the year. I never could come up with a word that felt just right for me, but this evening a blogger I admire, Julie, The Crafty Quilter, shared someone else’s blog post about claiming a word for yourself to explore, to be influenced by, to grow with. And I knew what my word is for 2016.
Just thinking the word feels good. This is my word.
Now what am I going to do with this word? I’ll probably doodle it, applique it, ponder it, read about it, look for experiences of it, and share it.
