Word for 2009

On Sue Bleiweis' Yahoo Group for Fibre & Stitch there has been a lot of discussion regarding a word to challenge ourselves with for 2009. After giving this much thought I have decided that I need to have two words - CREATE and BLOG. I just couldn't give one up for the other.

I want to be able to create every day and to blog at least once a week. I tend to let other things in my life interfere with my achieving both on a regular basis.

Webster's Unabridged Dictionary defines Create as:

" cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not ordinary processes; evolve from one's own thought or imagination, as a work of art; cause to happen; bring about;...."

Of course, the word Blog is not found in my edition of Webster because blogging is an activity that has come about in more recent times. Thus, I offer my own definition:

"Sharing thoughts, ideas, creations and feelings via the internet. Keeping in contact with cyber friends and meeting new friends through words, pictures and sharing images of creative projects."

What will be your Word for 2009?

Please share your word with others through the use of your blog or email.
