word collection: abide

Going to make a word collection. You know, like hipsters collect obscure album art or children collect strange stones, I will collect words. I will put them in my pocket and at any possible moment reveal my treasure to the world.

My first word is Abide.

It’s one of the loveliest, softest, strongest words. It keeps going on – firm and golden and never ending as a wedding ring, tender and protective as a shallow, immovable as a fortress in the midst of a battle, or a cave in the onslaught of a raging storm.
