The word for the year

It is unbelievable to me that we are already in a new year -- 2013 flew by so fast

Last year at this time I wrote a post titled "A Brave new word" where I talked about choosing a word as a "touchstone" for the year regarding my art work

The word I selected for 2013 was "Brave"

Little did I know then that I would be exercising that word not only artistically, but personally as well

Given that, I've thought quite a bit about possible words for 2014, and I keep coming back to one:  REACH

Specifically as it is in the context of the quote from Robert Browning:  "Ah, but a man's reach should exceed his grasp -- or what's a heaven for?"

In that context on my art this is a sort of extension of the whole Brave idea -- learning last year to be brave enough to try things I might not have otherwise, I am well aware that I am already Reaching toward things that I do not yet grasp.

I hope this year to extend my Reach
