Tabula rasa

Ahhh, that feels good.

It's been coming on for some time, this wanting to wipe the slate and start fresh. I was the sort of kid who tore out diary pages almost as quickly as they were written, so it's pretty amazing most posts survived for as long as they did.

Now this place feels like a brand new notebook. Fall season, first day of class.

Oh wow! As a kid I was the kind of kid who hoarded every page and note I exchanged with my friends. Starting over sounds great, but I don't think I'd be strong enough to do it.

It was surprisingly easy, Karen. I kept what I wanted and pitched the rest, and am moving on to Chapter Two.

I've been thinking a LOT lately about doing that myself. Congrats to your courage! :)

RockDog, it was like taking the Nestea plunge. Only without the sting.

Oooh, I couldn't work out was different at first! I tend to just change my blog layout/design when I feel like that. I suppose it makes me feel like I've moved on to a new volume :)

Open your books, and let's begin.
