Another year - another word.

Another year has flown almost completely past me.  I won't go into a litany of apologies because I've become such a bad blogger.  And since I don't really *do* new years resolutions, I won't promise that I'll wake up in 2011 and magically become consistent.  But I am wrapping up my year.  Shows are all finished for the year.  This is the time of year when I do a lot of reflection, clean off my bench (hopefully), reface my hammers, spend some time with my family and; friends, and figure out my *one word* for the year to come.  Next year's word, or at least what I think will be next year's word, came very easily to me.  In the past they haven't. 

This year my word was focus.  And I tried.  With some success.  Better than before.  I am grateful that this year new doors opened up for me.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some wonderful people.  And I'm sure that it will continue in 2011. 

Unless my mind takes a drastic turn in the next couple of weeks- my word for 2011 is stretch.  It's what I need right now in so many ways.  Well that and a haircut.  But haircut wouldn't work as a word for the year.  LOL.  Stretch.  It suits me.  I think I'll add it to a piece of jewelry as a gentle reminder.  What's your word?  You don't have to is fine if you're not quite so ready to share.
