March 1st

I see you. I see your posts come through my email. I see your excitement, your openness, your journey about to begin. I read what you write and wonder if I write just as well, with great description, with a thoughtful choice of words.

I no longer join you every day in a classroom, but for this month, I will join you once again. We will catch up. We will share our lives once more. I will hear how children have grown and lives have changed. Because this is March for me. The chance to glance back and step into old shoes, to try to them on and see how or if they still fit. To dust off my writing abilities, sharpen my pencil, and open my mind. And I am so looking forward to it.

  1. I love the descriptive language you use in this piece and the way you speak directly to your reader. I can feel your excitement tinged with nervousness…and I know exactly how you feel! Here’s to March and writing!

  2. Wonderfully written. I liked this sentence a lot … “The chance to glance back and step into old shoes, to try to them on and see how or if they still fit.”
