100 word song: High School is Just Like Starting Over

"Don't worry about the new school. High School is a new group of people, ones who do not know you from before. It's just like starting over. "

The wise advice given me so long ago came back as I watched my daughter, viola in hand, make her way up the steps to her new performing arts school. She had competed for this spot in a more academically demanding program.

In the bigger pond of high school I found friends and security. I hope she finds academic fulfillment and success.

"Hope it works for you" I whispered as she went through the door.

This week I am trying something new: the 100 word song challenge.  100 words inspired by a chosen song. Another hop I have lurked around for some time,  I was lured in by this weeks choice: John Lennon’s Starting Over. To see what others did with the same inspiration and 100 words, click on the link.

  1. What a great way to approach the unknown of a new school! If this is non-fic, then my best to your daughter on her new journey!! (visiting from 100 Word Song)

    1. Thank you. It is non-fic, she started high school this fall, in our school system's performing arts program. So far she has been challenged but happy.
