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?


In January I decided this year's theme would be "connect", and my hopes have been realised in many ways: I've made new friends; strengthened old friendships; I call my mother more often.

In the hooping world, I connected, too. I attended Hoop Camp and hosted Spin Matsuri; I got dozens of people around the world to learn a hoop dance I choreographed; I've introduced the joys of hooping to scores of people in Tokyo.

And thanks to a disconnect a while back, I've re-connected with skills I'd let fall to the wayside: art, writing, cooking.

So all in all, connect seems to have been the right theme for the year. I'm tempted to choose it again for 2011. But in the spirit of change and experimentation, I will pick a new one.


With "relate" as my theme in 2011, I will create deeper connections and share stories.

Actions I might take in pursuit of "relate": affect, ally, appertain, apply, ascribe, assign, associate, bracket, chronicle, combine, compare, concern, conjoin, connect, coordinate, couple, credit, depict, describe, detail, disclose, divulge, express, impart, impute, interconnect, interdepend, interrelate, itemize, join, link, narrate, orient, orientate, particularize, pertain, picture, present, recite, recount, refer, rehearse, report, retell, reveal, sling, spill, state, tell, touch, track, unite, verbalize, yoke.
