One Word. Encapsulate the year 2010 in one word. Explain why you’re choosing that word. Now, imagine it’s one year from today, what would you like the word to be that captures 2011 for you? (Author: Gwen Bell)
One word? Hmm … One word to encapsulate 2010. When I first started pondering this the first word that sprang to mind was frustration. Then as I thought some more I decided that hospital was the better choice, but as I sit here writing in my notebook I know the word is fear.
In June my father had a rather serious heart attack. In October I had major surgery and was diagnosed with skin cancer. I spent almost ten days in ICU. I’ve been writing about my fears and my road to recovery here.
