Great word! I loved all of the quotes and photos. It's always a good time to focus. I told Jill I didn't know about choosing a word for next year yet, and she told me she isn't finished with her current one yet. That's how I feel too!

Nice! I just recognized my word for 2008, also my first 'word'. I'll maybe put it forward on my own blog, rather than in your comments, though!

Oh, good word! I'm glad you've finally settled on one. I have one whirling around in my head, but I think it's a bit stupid :-/
