When I was a child, one of my very favorite moments every fall was when I organized my fresh, clean school supplies into my sparkly new backpack before the new school year began. The smell of the lined paper and newly sharpened pencils evoked the prospect of all that a new year of school might bring. After I began keeping a journal in high school, the crackling sound of the spine on a new blank book opening for the very first time brought forward that same sense of wonder at what the pages would someday hold.
Here I am, staring at the blank pages of a brand new blog and tingling with that familiar hope and anticipation. Where will this new venture take me? What forks lie ahead and what paths will I take? Oh the surprises and unexpected twists to come!
