I’m Loving My New One Little Word…Weaving!

I’ve been doing my usual dilly-dallying about my OLW and I thought I had finally found it. But “We Are All Weavers of Words” shed new light on my search. After I wrote my first March Challenge post yesterday and realized how I make my way in the world, I knew I had to adopt “weave” as my OLW. Here’s why.

I weave threads of my life every day. Some of us call it multitasking. I think weaving sounds gentler and more creative.

I weave words that I write every day whether its emails, texts, the occasional poem or posts I am working on.

I weave friends into my life as often as possible. I am a very social person and enjoy friendship time.

I weave quiet times into my life as often as possible which sounds like a contradiction to the above but it’s really a matter of balance.

I weave awareness of the world into my daily and weekly activities. This means keeping up with the news and sometimes responding to it.

I weave community activism into my life through a group my family founded to resist overdevelopment and degradation of the environment in our town.

I weave all members of my family into my life as much as I can.  Today I am hosting a baby shower luncheon for my daughter in law who is soon to give birth to our first grandchild. My daughter is co-hosting.

I really love woven items like baskets and rugs and poems, and talented writers who are weavers and incorporating weaving into my own life in a big way. Yep! Weaving is definitely my OLW for this year.

Here’s a lovely piece about weaving words: https://wordservewatercooler.com/2012/09/10/the-warp-and-woof-of-weaving-stories/

  1. I think “weave” is the perfect word for you. You are involved in so many activities. You are a viable part of any group you join. You are often the thread holding things together. Great choice.
