growth spurt

That first-day-of-school, clean slate feeling is definitely wasted on the young. It's grown-ups who can truly appreciate a fresh start now and again. What would you write on yours? I'd like to take a particular drawing class, master InDesign software, practice meditating, finish the book I started writing, read more.  There's an online course on Modern Poets that looks great, some Thai recipes I want to cook, an autumn-colored scarf I want to knit. The sense of possibility that matters most and we never outgrow the need for it. Grow or die, a wise teacher once told me. Grow and live, I've learned
