“There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.” (Self Reliance, Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Did you guess? I started back to school on Wednesday. My work is cut out for me. It’s been a very, very long time since I was a college student and I was a little bit anxious about the whole thing. But everything has been okay. I’ll be taking a few core classes before I get to the fun stuff, but I’m excited and hopeful about this new path. I’ll still be blogging and knitting, but some of my posts might be about . . . school.
Thank you all for the supportive and encouraging comments on my previous post. You continue to affirm for me that blogging is a positive force and that we gain so much from one another through what we share, selective as it can be sometimes. I value each one of you and take your words and sentiments with me when I read them.
