I had a little New Year’s Eve gathering at my house this year, and I did something different for a table decoration: I made a tree of words for 2011. To make it, I gathered branches in my yard and then attached paper leaves. Each leaf hides a word. Now every visitor to my house gets to choose a leaf so they can discover their word for 2011.

I was rather surprised to receive this word, since for quite some time, I have been on a bit of a hiatus from dating. Well, maybe 2011 is the year I will meet someone special. We will just have to wait and see. One of my friends got contemplation. Another one got optimism. I asked them if they were happy with their words, and they said they were. I would have let them choose again if they wanted to, but they declined. Do you have a word for the New Year? If not, I’d be happy to choose one for you from my little tree. Just let me know.
