Across the country millions of students at various levels are embarking on the incredible journey that is a new school year. Although I won’t be entering a classroom this September, a few months ago I decided to use this month to reeducate my brain in a number of ways. One of those ways? Getting back on the blog train.
That’s why when I woke up and flipped to a new page in my calendar and saw this:
I felt a strange pang of cosmic coherence. (If you can’t see what’s happening on there we’ve got an inexplicable image of a coy next to a quote from Abraham Lincoln: “The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.”)
One of the reasons I started this blog is because I was fascinated by the ways in which people appropriate images, ideas, and honestly, misconceptions about our 16th President. Although the whole inspiration-industry is something that I’ve got a lot of feelings about, I appreciated the serendipity of an oddly placed Lincoln quote to kick-off the month.
So, taking this day by day, step by step, I look forward to going back to school in a log-cabin school house with my fellow Lincoln nerds this September.
