Five Random Words

Five words were once suggested to me by a very sweet person, who posed the question "what do they mean to you?" Of course each word has several meanings, however, the following definitions popped out of my head. Ask yourself this same question; it is fun!

1. Compose - I love this word for the images it conjures up in my head of creating something, whether it is a drawing, a sculpture, a piece of music, a garden or a recipe. The list is endless.With one's imagination, anything can become an element of or with something else. Compose can form the basis of something that can be a springboard to even more wonderful things.
2. Harvest - Harvest moon like a big pumpkin in the October sky. Harvest Fairs are small town gatherings for family and friends. Most importantly for me though, Harvest conjures up the meaning of hard and dutiful farm work, the kind that puts blisters on hands and dirt under fingernails. And I am thankful for every Farmer we have in our country. A sincere "thank you."
3. Object - Art object, or otherwise known as "object d'art" I think of motion caught in a moment, and it makes me smile and wonder.
4. Travel - the big wide beautiful world. Opening one's senses to learning about how other people live. They may be pretty and not so pretty, but real. I think of dreaming of far away lands and exotic places.
It also means driving to another state here in the U.S. and listening to our different regional accents, and appreciating all that we have and benefit from a collective society.
5. Wonder - Deep thoughts yet to be uncovered, or may never be. To question, challenge and daydream all that there is in the universe. The wonder of life - so large that I can't get my arms around it. Other times, wondering how amazing it is to watch something and someone grow. From a sprout to a flower blossom or a child to an adult. It's a beautiful process and sometimes, it's difficult to contain the bursting of my smile in my heart.


  1. Five great words....love your description of them. Happy Sunday!

  2. I love the word Harvest because I think that goodness will come from the things that we nourish.

    About travel, I love when you talked about learning how other people live and said, "they may be pretty and not so pretty, but real." That made my heart sing.

  3. I will also add harvest as a personal favorite. I love it as a noun, and as a verb. For everything it represents. It's such a delicious word...like nourishment for my soul!

  4. Kathleen,
    I love the definitions you gave each of these five words. The only one that was completely different than my own {due to my education in Law, politics and analytical side} was "Object".
    I prefer your definition. :)
    Wonder-full words to live this new year!
    Your Friend,
