    my one word ’23 {a}

    This New Year’s celebration was…different…than usual: We all stayed up ’til midnight. Had family over. Went tubing–fun!–with friends on New Years Day. (We usually have a mellow January 1.) And, this month feels…different…than usual: January ’23 hasn’t had that start New Years usually does for me. I’m not resolving or declaring. Anything. At all. (Which […]

    a one word year

    If you’ve been around here for long, you know…I believe one word really can change a life. It’s the crux of this blog and my website. I chose my first word (or…it chose me) mid-2015. I was weary, grumpy, resentful. (One look at my calendar and I knew why.) That’s when I donned Authentic — […]

    Coming to the One Word party? Join the link-up here! As soon as I sat down to write this post, I heard The Von Trapp Family singing: So long, farewell, auf Wiedersehen, adieuAdieu, adieu, to yieu and yieu and yieu That’s one of my favorite scenes in the movie. Little Gretl! That staircase! Anyway. I […]

    my one word prompt {december twenty-two}

    December. December! I’d say I feel…ready. Ready for my last month with My Word. (Though elements of Engage will stay with me, for sure.) That’s some of what I’ll do this month, in fact. Sit with this ‘capsule’ of my word. A cheat sheet of what I did this year…and what will I bring with […]

    my one word prompt {november twenty-two}

    I can’t believe it! I did it again. (Well, not again.) (Sort of again.) (More like simultaneously?) Let me back up: In my last post, I told you how I screwed up logistics…at a friend’s expense…a couple of weeks ago. Which was bad enough! Listen to what else I did: Lincoln is flying back to […]

The link will be live all week, through Sunday. Thanks for coming! My October word work was…mundane. At best. (How’s that for a hook!?!) It was much-needed, hit-me-over-the-head […]

    my one word prompt {october twenty-two}

    This little maple leaf caught my eye on a walk a few days ago. (Contrasting colors in nature tend to hijack my attention. Coleus, for example. And lichen against a host.) On Wednesday morning, I left my van at a service station for its NYS state inspection and took a quiet walk while I waited. […]

    my one word prompt {september twenty-two}

    At first I thought I’d do my usual, come September — a ‘back to basics’ with My One Word. In a building-blocks, back-to-school kind of a way. It’s what I had every intention of doing when I sat down to write this prompt; I’ve been looking forward to it, actually! (In the same way I […]
