Week in Seven Words #1

(Updated) – I’ve met HKatz of The Sill of the World, one of my favorite blogs, while I was maintaining my old blog, www.nancycudis.com. I haven’t been blogging for the past year due to personal and health reasons. Upon my comeback, I returned on Weebly then to WordPress rather than on Blogger. Despite this, I retain my avidness as a reader for the blogs I have followed in the past, including HKatz’s.

I have always admired her for her creativity in her Week in Seven Words, in coming up with scenes for words that sound, or truly are, simple.

Another example is the word absolution for which she wrote, “They love talking about actions having consequences until it comes to something they’ve done. Then, good intentions are all that matter”.

As of this writing, HKatz has so far produced 314 posts for Week in Seven Words. Such endeavor as always encouraged me to challenge my creativity. Hence, I wish to support her and in the process challenge my own creativity by participating in her weekly activity by coming up with my own scenes for seven words.

Here is my first Week in Seven Words:
