I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of the alphabet. I appreciate everyone who’s contributed so far, and encourage those who haven’t yet to jump in before we get to Z:)
This week’s letter U is a great example of Unity, and Mark Harai said it best when he said: “Great accomplishments are achieved by inspired, capable people who come together in Unity to work for a common goal.” And Mark gave a tip of the hat to Lori Gosselin for suggesting it first, saying “great minds think alike”. Indeed they do.
And this Alphabet Series has proven to be an exercise in Unity, as people have contributed the raw materials from which I created posts. You’re all to be thanked for providing words each week.
I’ve been challenged, entertained, stymied and motivated to include your suggestions, and I haven’t even had to Umpire (thanks Ana Isabel Canhoto, for your submission and for saying, “in a nod to your sports background, I suggest Umpire”).
And Bill is someone that many of us would say is Ubiquitous (thanks Tammy and Carolyn for that word).
In this article, “How to Become Ubiquitous” (like our pal Bill), Dorie Clark suggests some Unique (thanks Ralph Dopping) ways in which to stay top of mind, even when you’re away. Take a moment to zip over and read Dorie’s article above, then come back…I’ll wait:)
This series has required Uberty (John Trader, thanks for defining that for me as “abundant productiveness”, or fruitfulness and plenty), as there have been an Undeniably vast number of Uber-great words submitted.
Erin Feldman encourages us to “be Understanding when someone makes a mistake”, and Hajra Khatoon reminds us that “Ugly shouldn’t be a word to describe anyone, and how Unique is the word to describe every human.”
As Barbara Klein chimes in with her motto: “No U-turns here, up, up and away !”, and, although the space here and on the blogosphere is Unlimited (thanks Jason Fonceca for that), there is a limit to the number of U words submitted, so I will conclude with our Queen of Alliteration, Vidya Sury‘s submission:
“U, Kaarina are Unique, Ubiquitous
I love this Unusual and
Undeniably Utterly Uber-cool Ultra-interesting Unbeatable series.
I am Unabashed about being
Unable to Unmask my U-words yesterday. I hope you don’t take Umbrage at my
Unexpected absence and Understand, Unbiased.
Unbeknownst to me, it was an
Uppity Unaccommodating Ugly Ulcerous Unaffected Uneducated Unforgiving Undertaker of a
client. He ranted on – Unaware, Unchecked, Unbecoming, Uncensored, Unabated, Unadulterated,
Unable to stop his Unappealing Unarguably Unappetizing Unsavory flow.
Unconcerned, my team
Unanimously and Unceasingly Umpired Uniformly. Though Undesirable not Uncommon
for Us. Unsavory, Unacceptable. And Ultimately Unclear.
Not being Unctuous, but I am Unarmed except for my Uncle’s
Umbrella and before you get at me with an Uzi…I am off to play my Ukulele”.
Whew…U, You wore me out! Now bring on the V’s:)
