If you've been here before, you'll note that I've done a little bit of redecorating. In the past, I may have just abandoned this page completely and started a new one. But I've just looked at the LAST blog that I left behind and I actually rather miss it. This time, I know I need a change, but I'm going about it a little differently. Why not turn this place into what I want, instead of wiping it all out? I'll just consider it growth. =) I'll probably continue to make a few tweaks here and there, but for now, I like that it's brighter than before. And the fact that I prefer brighter is a very good sign.
Much of the inspiration has come from the work that I've done with Karen's Path Finder class. With her help, I was finally able to come up with my word for the year (I know it's already almost mid-year, but better late than never). The word? Bloom.
Some of Merriam-Webster's definition of bloom:
"to mature into achievement of one's potential"
"to flourish in youthful beauty, freshness, or excellence"
"an outward evidence of freshness or healthy vigor"
"a bar of iron or steel hammered or rolled from an ingot"
