Daily Words

Yesterday three of the most creative women I know sat around our library table, transforming journal pages with clipped words and images. We talked about resolutions and words to shape our daily lives. I like the idea of choosing a word, as many people do, to guide one's life throughout a year, but I do not think that would suffice for me. I decided to take the worldly journal given to each of us and select a word each day. Those immediately in my mind are grace, stillness, calm, peace, transforming, learn, create, secret, walk, sunshine, sorrow, morning, night, justice, need, desire, serve, service. My plan is to find a quote from someone wise for each word, to add a bit of collage to each page, and to search for how that word plays out in my day. Any word ideas are welcome!

  1. i love the words you've chosen and would like to explore them in my own way each day, as you are doing the same half a country away. let me know as you add more to your list. at the end of the year it will be fun to compare the windows and doors each word has opened for us.

  2. You are indeed a library jewel!! I love that you're doing these journals & with friends. The words you chose are kindred spirits to me! Ideas: Quotation sites?
    I Just noticed Between Shades of Gray on your list. I love that book & thought the the author's work was noble & a service to the world. (I had read author interviews, etc after reading it...)

    Thank you for your sweet & comments on my last 2 posts...I guess we do take walks together here through our words & images...Good New Year to you!

    1. I will check out the author's notes about the book! Thank you for the recommendation. I do think we are thinking and experiencing similarly across the miles! Someday we can make that face to face connection, I hope.
