celebrating one little word

I’ve been wrapping up my 2013 One Little Word year with “pilgrim,” (which was a great word, by the way,) and gearing up for my 2014 OLW.  I knew I needed a word that would inspire my art and poetry and yet wind its way into my life as well. So I’ve chosen the word “weave” for next year.

I love the process of reading the definition and synonyms, and finding quotations.  A Chinese proverb I found brings me joy:
“Don’t stand by the water and long for fish; go home and weave a net.”
Another quotation that I can’t find the author of is this:
“Some people weave burlap into the fabric of our lives, and some weave gold thread.  Both contribute to make the whole picture beautiful and unique.”

Here are my first two story pictures for this word:
