First Day

Firsts are important. Firsts are powerful. We tend to remember first times with precise detail because we’re meeting ourselves in a brand new situation for the very first time.

Run back through a few first days, down the halls of a few favorite grades with a few favorite teachers, the first time you learned the truth about your parents being Santa Claus, the first time you met a favorite friend. What first wants to be explored today?

  • What’s the first memory that sneaks up on you?
  • Write the first thing you ate this morning and where you ate it.
  • Where’s the first place you’d go if you ran away from home?
