The A to Z of one word messages ~ A is for Awed


word in progress today:
April 1, 2013
At Nutmeg Designs we specialize in one word signs, and even though we have done more than one word those occasions have been rare. This month I am going to focus on words we have made and words I hope to make.

Over on Flickr I sometimes leave a simple one word comment and often it is "Awed."

What do I mean? I hope the photographer understands that I mean I am overwhelmed by beauty, by talent, by colors, by shapes, by emotions, and by the generosity to take the time to share it all for my eyes to see. To be awed is truly splendid. To show you what I mean I made a gallery featuring one photograph from 16 of my favorite Flick friends.

I am awed by flowers, jazz, friends, scientific discoveries, art, glass, birds, and love. I am awed by a God who is involved in all of this.

And finally I am awed by Arlee Bird, who came up with the idea of a to z and has created quite the phenomenon.

So what are you awed by?

  2. I love your post. Awed is a word I hear very rarely, that's probably because we have become so practical, that we don't allow ourselves to be enthralled by little things, I'm glad you brought it up. I look forward to your other posts.

  6. Following from the A to Z Challenge.

    I am awed when standing on the beach and looking out at the ocean. I am awed looking at rugged mountains and mountain ranges. I was awed at the size of my daughter when she was born (3 lbs .4 oz, 13.5". A photo of my husband's fingers over the side of the NICU bassinet showed that the width of his knuckles was as long as her whole leg.

  7. Sometimes one word is enough and awed is rich in meaning and reflection.

  8. I am frequently awed by the majesty of nature. I can stare up at a sky or out at an ocean for a very long time and not lose that sense of awe.
