(Community Matters) CLARITY, my word for 2014. It was almost LAUNCH. Steven’s is STEWARDSHIP. 2014 Words
my previous words 2013: DEFINE, 2012: TRANSITION (hmm, immediately recall before)
(OED) the quality of being clear, in particular:
- the quality of being coherent and intelligible:for the sake of clarity, each of these strategies is dealt with separately
- the quality of being easy to see or hear; sharpness of image or sound:the clarity of the picture
- the quality of being certain or definite:it was clarity of purpose that he needed
- the quality of transparency or purity; the crystal clarity of water
I realize CLARITY is close to DEFINE; but the latter is a verb, CLARITY is a noun. I want to act and communicate with CLARITY. Perhaps CLARITY is the manifestation of DEFINE, though I realize, DEFINE is ongoing.
