My word for the year 2013
This is Week 2 of Focus on Life, the photography challenge sponsored by Sally Russick of Studio Sublime. This week's prompt asks us to choose a word to guide us through the year. For a long time, I thought I would use "follow through" or just "follow." I certainly can use to remember to finish what I have started.
But follow gave connotations of being a mindless follower, and I don't want to just blindly follow anything. Maybe "finish?" Not quite right either. And then it came to me. Forward! I had already taken a picture of a "one way" sign with some idea of using it to make a series of arrows. Or something.
I decided to stay with the sign. but somehow did not want to have the arrow pointing left. Picmonkey to the rescue! I flipped the cropped sign photo upside down. Hmm, what's missing? I liked the sign upside down, but it really conjured up too many alternate meanings. Aha! Plaster the word "Forward" on it.
Yeah it sounds lame, but I like it......
... it's really just about taking something and making it MINE!
And going FORWARD.
