Today’s Word

UNITY…   unity

Today I am thinking about the word UNITY. Webster defines it as a noun and the simple definitions listed are:

1. the state of being in full agreement

and

2. a way of combining the parts in a work of art or literature so that they seem to belong together

Hmmmm….I like both of those and they fit me well.

1. Full agreement is certainly not likely to happen in most situations, but it sure appeals to me. Mostly I wish we could simply agree to disagree and call that unity. Why does everyone think others must feel the say way they do? How boring that would be!

2. If you look at my blog or my Facebook page or my Etsy shop, you know I love creating things, so the second definition really works for me too. Did you know that I also like to write? It is not always evident in my blog, because I just let the words go, for the most part, and write about all kinds of things. However, I have written for a few magazines and also put together a book for women titled, Grace and The Female Art of Aging. (Maybe more on that in another blog.)

Basically, the word means many things to many people and I would like for all of us to think on the subject today. How can I create more unity in my world? If each one of us tries to achieve that little goal, won’t the world be a much better place everywhere? I think so! What do you think?

Off to a 2015 Start

Happy New Year…even a bit late!

Off to a new start for 2015 and back at the work table. Today I am making pillow tops and bags. These will be in my Etsy shop when they are finished…along with more that don’t show up here.

My goals for the year? Other than being the person I am meant to be? Well, I hope to understand more about the ins/outs of selling my wares on Etsy (or other means). Why? Because I truly love creating things, as noted by my header here! What will I do with all of them? Maybe support my habit!!!

If you have any words of wisdom or a blog to share on this subject, please let me know in the comments below! I will also unabashedly ask for some love here and on Etsy…and will also return the favor!

Here’s to the new year and success in all the forms it can take!
