Tuesday Mosaic - Revolution

1. VIVE LA RÉVOLUTION, 2. Projekt Revolution 8/1/08, 3. revolution is coming, 4. Portrait of a revolution..., 5. revolution, 6. dreams are revolutions., 7. shirt_revolution, 8. revolution [EXPLORE!], 9. revolution

I'm not sure why I picked "revolution" as this Tuesday's theme, but when I got on flickr with the intent of searching for something inspirational, the word just popped into my head. I think it works though.

The official definition for "revolution" is:
–noun
1. an overthrow or repudiation and the thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed.

2. Sociology. a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, esp. one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence.

3. a sudden, complete or marked change in something: the present revolution in church architecture.

4. a procedure or course, as if in a circuit, back to a starting point.

5. a single turn of this kind.

6. Mechanics.
a. a turning round or rotating, as on an axis.
b. a moving in a circular or curving course, as about a central point.
c. a single cycle in such a course.

7. Astronomy.
a. (not in technical use) rotation (def. 2).
b. the orbiting of one heavenly body around another.
c. a single course of such movement.

8. a round or cycle of events in time or a recurring period of time.

I love words that mean more than one thing. A revolution is both a turn around something, say a revolution around the sun (a year) and a drastic change in society, say the American Revolution. We are currently living in trying times, but in the same breath life is exciting because so many things are changing: our government, the way we live, technology, education and more.

So what's your revolution going to be for?
