I’m participating in The Scintilla Project, which is a fortnight of prompts that are meant to remind the participants why they started blogging in the first place. I’m very excited about this project – I think this is the kickstart I need to start writing here again. Please be sure to go to the homepage and check out some of the other participants!
Day 2: No one does it alone. Write a letter to your rescuer or mentor (be it a person, book, film, record, anything). Share the way they lit up your path.
The first Friday we knew each other, you made us stand on the desks and handed out papers. We usually listened to music during class, but this song was different. This was a rite of passage for the seniors, our declaration of independence. You told us on the first day of the semester that this was going to be the most important class we took. You were going to teach us HOW to think, to think for ourselves, to see the logical fallacies in arguments and in our own writing. And this song was the embodiment of everything we were going to learn.
