Summer’s not quite over yet, but September has officially arrived. My morning run took me past the school kids waiting for the bus this morning, with smiling parents snapping pictures of the first day back — maybe for some the first day ever.
I’m always a teensy bit envious of students at this time of year. I know, I know, the stress of being a student can be killer, but nothing beats the smell of new notebooks, new pencils, new pens, and the feeling of “I can do this” that comes with new syllabi, new teachers, and new course loads.
As for this blog, we thought a good September theme would be “turning points” — in particular, we’re interested in the idea of starting over, whether it be in a new school year, a new job, a new diet and exercise routine, or just a new outlook on life. Since both “Virginia” and I have been going through quite a lot of “turning points” in our own lives this year, we wanted to reflect on that, and maybe hear your reflections as well.
