Ten writers for children. All with something to say.
Hair today, gone tomorrow
In Christy's post she talked about back-to-school rituals. Getting a haircut was right up there with buying new tennis shoes. Well, I got a new haircut big time this past Friday. After letting my hair grow for sixteen years, I had twenty inches cut off. Whew! I have to admit, it was a little bit like losing an old friend. Gone are the days of wrapping my hair around my neck like a scarf to stay warm during the winter. Also gone are the regular drain clogs in the shower. It's been interesting to note people's reactions, from "Oh. That looks...different," to "Good. Now you look like a boy." The latter remark came from a 95-year-old client on my Meals-on-Wheels route! While I'm still getting used to the new look, I'm glad I was able to donate the "old look" to Locks of Love, an organization that makes wigs for children who have suffered hair loss due to medical conditions.
So here's to a new month, a new season, and fresh starts!
