My word of 2018 is Candid. Oh yeah, I’ve decided to keep in the trend I set for 2017, even though I, apparently, forgot about it halfway through the year. Last year it was a task to come up with a word, but Candid came right away. Admittedly, I was a little concerned about Candid being too restrictive, but when I looked it up in the dictionary and thesaurus, so many other ideas came to mind.

candid |ˈkandid|


1 truthful and straightforward; frank: his responses were remarkably candid | a candid discussion.

2 (of a photograph of a person) taken informally, especially without the subject’s knowledge.

truthful, straightforward, open & honest

informal, casual, impromptu

I’m looking forward to exploring the ideas and possibilities behind all of these words in 2018. For now, I leave you with a very Candid photo of me from a recent photo shoot with friends. Cheers to 2018 and all the very candid moments it will hold.
