I decided to join all the cool kids and do the Reverb10 project. My whole life seems “unbloggable” now…The favorite son and I are back in the big house in the small city. We gave up on the cottage by the bay for a lot of reasons (educational, financial, health, boredom, and more).
December 1 – One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you? (Author: Gwen Bell)
OK. One word to encapsulate 2010. Insulation. My coping mechanism to the inundation of previously unimaginable situations I absolutely have no control over has been to curl up in bed with a laptop, puppy, and sometimes (oh, the shame) a bag of peanut M&M’s. Friends, family, favorite activities…too much work on top the world crashing down around and into me.
Ironically, the word I chose for 2010 (way back in January) was Joy. Name it and claim it, right? I did find the word all over the place.
Graffiti, notebooks, shopping bags, names of service providers…an idea of a safe place in a bad storm, but not much of a reality.
What word would I like to have captured 2011 for me? Restoration.
