First

Daily Draw: Shaman's Oracle ~Spirit of Initiation

First day of school. I felt like I was a foot taller when I got back home.
Freshman initiation. Wearing eggs and oil and dirt and paint all day, filing in a line through each room full of kids. Didn't get it then, still don't. Playday/Payday for bullies.
First day on any job. Guaranteed to make us feel dumb.
First day in our own first home. Bliss.
First dog. Why didn't we think if this sooner!
First day of retirement. We got in the car and ran and ran.

Away from the enormous stresses we'd been under. And ran some more. In some cases I am still running.
That is life.
