one little word (2012).

i finally chose a word for 2012 - or maybe, more accurately, a word chose me...

definition from http://www.dictionary.com/

fo·cus   /ˈfoʊkəs/ Show Spelled [foh-kuhs] Show IPA noun, plural -cus·es, -ci  /-saɪ, -kaɪ/ Show Spelled[-sahy, -kahy] Show IPA, verb, -cused, -cus·ing or ( especially British ) -cussed, -cus·sing.

noun
1. a central point, as of attraction, attention, or activity: The need to prevent a nuclear war became the focus of all diplomatic efforts.
2. Physics . a point at which rays of light, heat, or other radiation, meet after being refracted or reflected.
3. Optics .
a. the focal point of a lens.
b. the focal length of a lens.
c. the clear and sharply defined condition of an image.
d. the position of a viewed object or the adjustment of an optical device necessary to produce a clear image: in focus; out of focus.
4. Geometry . (of a conic section) a point having the property that the distances from any point on a curve to it and to a fixed line have a constant ratio for all points on the curve.
5. Geology . the point of origin of an earthquake.

verb (used with object)
7. to bring to a focus or into focus: to focus the lens of a camera.
8. to concentrate: to focus one's thoughts.

focus, for me, is going to about finishing what i start and about paying attention to the details...

here's the necklace i made tonight - this will ultimately end up being a charm on my one little word album for this year.
