On the First Day...
Well, this is my inaugural post. I would like to give a big thank you to Sara for her inspiration and the lovely work she does with turtleparade. I truly believe that Myspace is a gateway drug leading to bigger things such as blogging and Sara is metaphorically my dealer.
Today I visited my Aunt and Uncle-in-laws office. They own a very successful temporary staffing company and two days ago it burnt to the ground. My husband and I really wanted to show our support, but I don't think we were ready for the devastation. There was nothing left but crumbling brick walls and piles of soot. What I found extremely profound was that their business is called Phoenix Staffing. I'm not sure if anyone other than Harry Potter readers and English teachers know this, but a Phoenix is a mythical creature that bursts into flames and is reborn from its own ashes.
I found something very amazing in that occurrence and I wonder why it takes things like fires to make people take a look at recreating themselves time after time. It seems like a nice way to look at constantly living life to the fullest.
