December 1 One Word

I decided to take Shauna's advice and try Reverb10, since I also crashed and burned in my NANOWRIMO attempt this year. There will be a prompt (and a blog entry here) for every day in December. Here's the first:

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?

My word for this year would have to be retreat. I feel like 2010 was a year for me to withdraw a bit, sort out my priorities, and figure out what was important.  I got The Hermit in a couple of tarot readings this year, and the meaning of that card seems to express the way I felt about where I was this year. I wasn't trying to isolate myself, but I was trying to clear the decks, get rid of mental clutter, and find my focus and center.

I am hoping the word for 2011 will be dynamic.  I think I need to take the lessons of 2010 and put them into action.  I feel like I have organized my toolbox, and now it's time for me to get a lot of work done.
