- glowing with light or color
- very excited or happy : feeling or showing excitement and happiness
i love this word...i love the immediate image it evokes in my mind when i say or hear it. i instantly think of people infused with an inner light that reaches out beyond them. something so undeniably happy and good. it brings to mind homes wrapped up by winter snow aglow with warmth, light and love.
there's a beauty to this word that inspires, comforts and brings happiness. when i first chose this word i had in mind the direction i wanted to take my project. it never fully evolved to something tangible, so i kept putting it off. all of a sudden it was the 10th...the day before OLW projects are due and i was still struggling with my concept.
i woke up november 11th and instantly i knew what this project was going to be about. november 11th, remembrance day. a day celebrated by many countries and also known as veterans day. this year, i think remembrance day took on a deeper meaning as our country was still reeling from the tragedy of the Ottawa and Quebec shootings. it was an emotional day for many canadians as we came together across our country aglow with pride, honouring those who have stood before, those who stand now and those who will stand in the years to come to serve and protect canada.
what does aglow mean to you?
If you want to play along and create something using this word up, please share a link at the bottom of this post with the inlinkz button. Please leave a link to a specific blog post or image on flickr, rather than a general url. Online galleries work too! We look forward to seeing what you create (art journal, scrapbook page, mini album, etc). We will leave the link open until December 13th!
