Reverb—December 1 and 2

I’ll be reverbing this month—find out more here. I’m a day behind so here’s two days’ worth.

December 1’s prompt: One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you?

  • 2010: Adventure. I made it through my first year in a new call and visited some new countries; that’s plenty of adventure there. Also, our family weathered a significant job change for Robert. I became a swim team mom, I let go of several writing commitments and created a huge empty space (some might call it a vacuum), which is a scary unknown space for me… and that space got filled up with a book contract.
  • 2011: Fruitful. I like that word better than productive—more organic, more process-oriented. Now that I have the contract, I have to write the darn book, so 2011 better be fruitful! Also, next year we will pass several kid milestones: two children in elementary school, getting rid of our last carseat and stroller, and finally finishing up with diapers, which have been with us for eight long years. (Yikes.) We’re also beginning a visioning/transformation process at our congregation, which will bear lots of fruit, I think.

December 2’s prompt: Writing. What do you do each day that doesn’t contribute to your writing — and can you eliminate it?

Random Internetting, and not easily. But I am working on these boundaries all the time.

    2010? Transition. 2009 was upheaval, changes in perspectives and paradigms; 2010 was starting to incorporate those changes of understandings into living my life a different way.

    2011? Flow. I’m hoping that Life continues to smooth out so I can attain my desire of dancing through it.
