As of today, I’ve been blogging for 12 years! And what a joy it’s been!
April 29th is my blogging anniversary and the day that I pick my new word for the year. This year I’ve chosen RISE.
There are many definitions for RISE and the ones resonating with me are:
To move upward
To become heartened or elated
To increase in fervor or intensity
To attain a higher level or rank
To come into being
To exert oneself to meet a challenge
Just like moons and like suns,With the certainty of tides,Just like hopes springing high,Still I’ll rise.…Leaving behind nights of terror and fearI riseInto a daybreak that’s wondrously clearI riseBringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,I am the dream and the hope of the slave.I riseI riseI rise.+ + +
