I’m trying to break out of a funk. I can’t think of a better way to do so than participating in the lovely and talented Kathy’s Tuesday Time Warp.
Today’s challenge is to choose your favorite post, EVER. I have a few favorites. (My Glee/Middle essay came immediately to mind, then I realized that I chose a post about Glee last week. Um, I didn’t think I was a Gleek, but clearly I am!) But today I wanted to highlight something a little more upbeat and inspirational.
A few weeks ago, Lori published the results of a blogging survey, and the results were quite surprising. One of the standout findings was that many bloggers reported they received the most comments on posts which they wrote quickly. That’s certainly true for me. I lavished hours and hours writing, polishing and editing this post. It’s not quite as subtle as I planned in my head, but I love the idea of rediscovering that childlike enthusiasm for adventure I used to possess.
We are having some unseasonal rain, and today I looked up at the hillside the pre-school is nestled into. My favorite neon green was not painted onto the hills: that particular hue takes many days of heavy downpour to achieve, but for a moment I remembered the color and the post. And I had a twinge of that special feeling of possibility and dreaminess. It was lovely.
