I immediately fell in love with the concept...and chose the word Evolution.
It came to me early New Year's Eve morning as I was meditating myself back to sleep.

Yep, celebrations kept waking me up.
(I guess I'm an old fuddy duddy, because hubby and I rarely stay up past 10pm...although I am known to read in bed until the wee hours...depending on the book).
This year we were with my daughter and her family on New Year's Eve and
while waiting to go down, (they live on the 2nd floor...same building) I was blog-hopping and came across Tuscan Rose. Specifically, a post about perspective.
While reading it, it occurred to me that my word for 2k13 is PERSPECTIVE.
Why? That's another post. I'm doing my best not to be so wordy.
Anyhoo, we stayed with the kids (and Pedro's mom) until almost 11pm!!!
Hubby played Wii boxing with our 5 year old granddaughter and immediately after - started asking if I was ready to go home.
So, up 2 flights of steps we came (no elevator), to our nice quiet, cozy apartment.
The whole city of Barranquilla is a panorama outside my 4th floor windows (we're on a hill) and all the sound...
comes at us full force. But that too..is another post. I'm really trying not to be so wordy in my posts.
So, I'm in bed listening to music from roughly 23 different neighbors - and damn they have good stereo systems...or very lively live bands -
and since I couldn't sleep...decided to turn one of my prepped journal pages into a word page.
A PERSPECTIVE word page.
And, this particular prepped page was picked because it had what might pass for a door on it. And, since I wanted to participate in the Door Challenge at Collage Obsession, it worked out just perfectly.
Kinda looks like a door. But I guess it depends on your perspective.
I had to say that.
Anyhoo...I officially began my new year playing with markers and paper and getting excited about art and the new year and the move and the freedom and good health and art and yard sales and my etsy shop and art and...phew.
After the barrio quieted down (at 6am)
I got a good night's sleep (43 solid minutes)
|and if you think that I up there looks like a T and that word is pot...and i was thinking about how much I'd like to smoke some so I could get to sleep...you're wrong. it's the I in the word poInt.|
and began my new year with gusto...and a really wonderful attitude about my new perspective.
Create Your Life,
PS-I KNEW I was forgetting something!!! I plan to follow along with Nathalie Kalbach's Creative Jump start...and the first prompt showed me how to make my own tape...which are the radiating lines in my journal page.
