Challenge #140 week of 6th October 2014

Happy Monday again everyone!

Today I'd like to offer you a dictionary definition:


noun [U]  /ˌri·ju·nə·fɪˈkeɪ·ʃən/ 
 the process of joining two parts of something, esp. a country, that were previously divided:The reunification of Germany meant that East Germany no longer existed as a legal entity.

On Friday 3rd October (last week), Germany celebrated The Day of German Unity. 

The Berlin Wall came down on 9th November 1989 - 25 years ago if you can believe it! - and the process of joining the Federal Republic of Germany (West Germany) and the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) was completed on 3rd October 1990.

As I continue learning about my new home (even after 13 years here!), this piece of world history in my own lifetime has become particularly poignant having seen both sides of the "wall". I have stood with my feet on either side of the previous border while visiting Berlin and have touched some remaining wall elements to get a sense of its history. It only seems right to ask you to be inspired today by reunification.

So many ways to take this prompt from the literal meaning of the word as defined above, through to a coming back together of two parts of one whole - even in scrapbooking!

Don't forget to share your creations with us over at our Whimsical Musings Flickr gallery (here) along with the tag WM#140. I can't wait to see what you make this week!
