Sally Russick of The Studio Sublime is hosting another year long challenge which is... sublime... as you'd expect with such a studio name. The challenge is named 'Focusing on Life' and for 2014 Sally is choosing a monthly theme, with a different prompt each week.
January's theme is 'Minimalist' and this week's theme is 'The Word(s)':
There are so many words, a simple grouping of letters that bombard us everyday, that impact our everyday life. They make us think, effect our purchasing of items and influence how we view ourselves. This week we will focus on words. What word speaks to you, makes you laugh, makes you feel good about your being and who you are in that moment. Is there a word that stands out, you find interesting, you think is fun to say.
I have already chose my word for 2014, and it is explained a bit in a previous post: Attain.
Today is a splendid winter day, one I would enjoy even more if I hadn't had quite enough of winter already (since 2 weeks before Christmas the temperatures never rose above freezing point and everything is white, white, white, as it snows at least once every 2 weeks... ). Since complaining about the weather won't help me too much (it won't help me at all, if we are honest), I made a fire and I was ready to enjoy it when the sun suddenly came out. Time for a picture! or two :)
Here we have my word, in a very minimalist context - from the Webster's thesaurus, a trio of books I bought when we arrived to Canada (it is one of the first books, if not *the first* :) ).
And here we have my word smiling at us - from my very happy mug, one I put on the table every now and then, it always makes me smile :)
Thanks for stopping by, stay warm and safe - and if you're inside please go see what other words are happily jumping at you!
