Hello March! Today marks Day 1 of 31 days of blogging with my friends at Two Writing Teachers. Every March they host the annual Slice of Life Challenge, where bloggers commit to posting to their blog every day for a month. Last year was my inaugural year, and I am proud to say I stayed the course and posted each and every day. I won’t say it was easy. I met several new friends along the way though, which made the journey all the more sweet.
My first post will be a dual posting, since Day 1 happens to fall on a Friday, which is Poetry Friday. We are gathering together with Linda Baie over at her blog, Teacher Dance. She has a beautiful poem about spring to share – I encourage you to stop over!
I wish I could say that where I live we too are on the precipice of spring. Alas, here in northwest Montana, winter still has a tight grip on us. As I type this post, the banging of my husband up on the roof attacking the death grip of icicles on our dormers reminds me that spring is still a long way away from us. Reading Linda’s poem is a beautiful promise of what awaits us in another six weeks (at least).
