Treasure

There is a trend to discover and announce your word (s) for the year, my first choice was Treasure…then Groov’n popped up… I’m claiming to live more intentionally with these words in 2023…Treasure…. a treasure, treasured people, places, memories, experiences and Groov’n, a little more wordplay and I will arrive at a Groov’n Treasure Trove !

Curiousity of new worlds and emerging media pathways led me to inquire and learn about the Blockchain…. first stop after the first year of Covid stay-at- home time was Clubhouse. Hours of listening to hallway conversations eventually led to The Dream Conduit. I’ve been hanging out with the Dreamers ever since I heard voices that resonated. Read more here… As my story flows I ended up participating their Art-a-Thon last Summer, my piece was accepted as a part of a juried group, and voila, my contribution NFT was minted and collected !

In October I put my hat in the ring for the learning experience of creating a unique generative profile image with a group of fellow artist, each of us created from our unique point of view resulting 500 unique images per artist…quite the process in deconstructive to reconstructive imagination within my art making. Come join in the fun, meet the contributing artists in the Clubhouse room this month as the project launches.

Each Thursday in January, 9:00 pm Eastern, on Clubhouse The Curation Conduit with Lianna Adams

Create your New Moon treasure with me as the New Year continues to shine its light !

treasure (n.)

mid-12c., tresor, from Old French tresor “treasury, hoard, treasure” (11c., Modern French trésor), from Gallo-Roman *tresaurus, from Latin thesaurus “treasury, treasure” (source also of Spanish, Italian tesoro), from Greek thēsauros “store, treasure, treasure house,” related to tithenai “to put, to place,” from reduplicated form of PIE root *dhe- “to set, put.” In Middle English also thresur, etc.; modern spelling is from 16c. Replaced Old English goldhord, maðm. General sense of “anything valued” is recorded from c. 1200. Treasure hunt is first recorded 1913. For treasure trove, see trove.

treasure (v.)

late 14c., “to amass treasure; to store up for the future,” also figurative, “regard as precious, retain carefully in the mind,” from treasure (n.). Related: Treasuredtreasuring.

Naturally leading to Treasure Trove !

trove (n.)

1888, from treasure trove (c. 1550), from Anglo-French tresor trové (late 12c.), translating Latin thesaurus inventus, literally “treasure found.” Originally any precious metal object one finds hidden whose owner is unknown. As this usually meant ancient hoards, the term came to mean “treasure hoard” in popular use. Rendered treasure found from mid-15c. French trove is past participle of trover “to find,” from Old French trovertorver, of unknown origin, perhaps from Latin turbare “to move” (hence “to seek for”) or Medieval Latin *tropare “to compose, sing.”

Funny how a word will pop in ! First, Groov’n then Groovy…truly throwback words.. naturally the music of the The Young Rascals…easy and smooth…

“Groovin’

Groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
I can’t imagine anything that’s better
The world is ours whenever we’re together
There ain’t a place I’d like to be instead of

Movin’ down a crowded avenue
Doin’ anything we like to do
There’s always lots of things that we can see
You can be anyone we like to be
All those happy people we could meet

Just groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
No, no, no, no

We’ll keep on spending sunny days this way
We’re gonna talk and laugh our time away
I feel it coming closer day by day
Life would be ecstasy, you and me endlessly

Groovin’ on a Sunday afternoon
Really couldn’t get away too soon
No, no, no, no
Groovin’, uh huh…
Groovin’

The Web3 world has its unique vocabulary, I recommend Googling a phrase/word whenever these new words show up which will usually yield a description and usage explanation.
