Word for 2012- OPEN

Galia Alena photography, word, yearly word: Open

“I tell you this
to break your heart,
by which I mean only
that it break open and never close again
to the rest of the world.”
Mary Oliver

My word for 2012 was going to be grow, but that soon grew into expand. Expand than expanded into OPEN which is now my word for the year. I love this word, it has such beautiful meanings on so many levels and encompasses both grow and expand along with blossom (my word on a previous year) with just a touch of vulnerability (just to be clear universe, can I please have that vulnerability without pain or hurt, thank you) and visibility and a lot of bravery.
Here's to the wonderful flow of good things both ways.
