Christine Kane talks about having a word for the year to signal your intention, to make things happen the way you want them to unfold. I like this idea, and my word for 2009 was OPPORTUNITY. It was my intention to take advantage of each opportunity that appeared and to create new opportunities when what I wanted was not readily apparent. I did follow this intention throughout the year, and as a result, I entered some shows I might have avoided – and got in – such as SAQA Transformations 09: Reflections. I joined a wonderful group of artists, Fiber Artists Coalition, which means more exhibits, curating “opportunities”, and support.
After giving it some thought this morning, I decided my word for 2010 is “PRESENT”. I want to be fully conscious, fully focused, in the moment, “present” for every piece of my life in 2010. I intend to be fully WITH whoever I am with, fully ENGAGED in whatever is going on EACH moment. How exciting!
What’s your word for 2010?
