The word empty often has negative connotations: the glass is half empty, my fuel tank is empty, or saying someone is empty-headed. I quite like it though, for me empty is a good thing.
If something is empty then it’s free to be filled up, whether that be with beer, petrol or information. Empty space is rare in this house because it’s a small house with limited space, and it doesn’t help that my mother and I are natural hoarders. I would prefer to hear that something is empty than to hear it’s full – empty suggests possibilities for filling things up!
My studio is full to the brim at the moment and it’s driving me nuts. I’m desperately trying to empty it again so that I can have the pleasure of working in more space, and of starting the process of stashing things away once more.
That’s it from me for this week’s word, a bit short and sweet but I spent most of yesterday feeling horribly unwell and now that I seem to be on the mend I want to make the most of today. Jenna over at Timballoo is this week’s host for Weekword, so pop along to her blog to see who else is playing.
