Rewrite your first post

we called it Whale Beach.

I am using the daily prompt from yesterday:

Now that you’ve got some blogging experience under your belt, re-write your very first post.

First, I want to take this opportunity to say that my blog is going to be TEN YEARS OLD on January 27, 2013. I am cooking up something in celebration and I will let you know in due time what that will be. But for now, here is my first post (from January 27th, 2003) rewritten as a pantoum.

R. and I took a drive up the coast yesterday.
It was so rejuvenating.
We went to one of our favorite beaches.
I don’t know the name of the beach but it is very beautiful.

It was so rejuvenating.
There are lots of rocks jutting up from the ocean.

Yesterday the waves were huge!

I felt so full of energy and hope.

I don’t ever want to leave this place.

I felt so full of energy and hope.
I love living here.
I don’t ever want to leave this place.
Expensive it is and hard to get by.

    1. Thank you so much! This is one of the nicest, most encouraging comments I have ever received. 🙂 I often feel like I can’t write and am tempted to give it up. I so very much appreciate your encouragement.
