rhythm and blues

Always a tad nostalgic on the first day of school. The bus zooms off and there goes your sweetie. And your summer. No matter how many times you've done it before, there's that familiar mixture of wistfulness, worry, wonder. What will the new year hold? Today, it's all about possibility, for those on the bus as well as those waving from the curb. There's nothing like the gift of a fresh start, whatever our age or stage, and this is as good a day as any to declare one. Time to learn something new, set some great goals, get a better perspective on work, catch up with friends, find a rhythm in the routine. In school and home and life, it's reassuring how quickly things fall into place.
