When I was in high school
we read an essay in English class titled

"Labour Day is the School Bell in the Playground of the Mind"

Like clockwork that fresh feeling of fall came flooding back to me as I walked onto campus this morning. The freshman faces all keen and eager to start a new semester - a new chapter.

It's an exciting time.

Full of possibility.
Full of hope.

To all of my friends who are going to back to school today (or this week, or last week)

And to all of my friends who feel like you've gone "back to school" in one way or another since the "bell" of Labour Day rang...

I give you all my favourite back-to-school supply

bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils.
