Reaching New Heights February 17, 2008

If you’re reading this blog and go to my school, go away. This is classified information.

I’ve been asked to write the opening essay for my school’s yearbook. The theme is Reaching New Heights. And…..I have no idea what to write about. I’ve tried a couple of things — you know, the verse that’s all like “He will raise them up like eagles, they will walk and not grow weary, they will run and not grow faint”…I thought about doing something with that. I thought about talking about how I was on the walking track above the gym in our brand-new community center. I actually tried writing that one. It sounded stupid. I’m currently thinking about writing about the recent flood, and how the water reached new heights…I may end up putting that in there.

I really don’t know. It’s exasperating me.

Ideas, anyone?

    Reading New Heights? You could talk about tall and short people. Floods sounds good. If you hike or climb mountains, that could be interesting. I don’t know. Ideas are hard.

    I probably do something abstract and artisticy about mountains…thanks for the idea! I’ve learned that I’m not allowed to put a personal spin on it tho, hence the abstraction and artisticness.
