the first day

Today was the first day of school.

I drove to work and noticed elementary kids lining the curbsides. Some waiting for the bus, some already on their way - inching closer to the dreaded schoolyard with each step. That was not the story in my case; I adored the first day of school - the smell of new school supplies, seeing familiar faces after a three month hiatus, meeting a new teacher, starting new classes...I was in heaven. I couldn't have been more thrilled with the possibilities that awaited me in the year to come; any nervousness that may have built up in anticipation of the first day was drowned out by the sheer delight that this day brought me. To be perfectly honest, every fall a small part of me mourns my inability to participate in this momentous day - the first day.

What better day, then, to make my first post on this blog? I am pretty excited to take this first step - I wonder how often I'll post once the novelty wears off, if my posts will be two-liners or full on paragraphs, if they'll be more image-heavy than text heavy, what new opportunities may arise as a result... who knows. What I do know is that I am just as pleased with this first day as I was with the first day of school. So here goes nothing I guess - I love firsts.
