Today is the final day for my Guest Blog Series of Something New! My good sis, Colleen Chesebro of Silver Threading Blog wraps it up for us.

New Beginnings

I would like to thank my friend Lisa, for inviting me to her fabulous blog and for inviting me to write about one of my favorite subjects – new beginnings.

When I was a child and mid-August rolled around, I remember fondly the anticipation I felt at the beginning of each school year. I loved my new pens and notebooks, folders, and theme paper. I diligently cut up brown paper grocery bags and wrapped the covers of my school books, as was the custom required by the Milwaukee Public School system at the time. Excitement was in the air and I knew that year would be the best yet!

In fact, I have always loved new beginnings. There is something fresh and exciting…

Colleen M. Chesebro loves writing speculative fiction and the sub-genres of fantasy and magical realism, other types of cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood – or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Fairy Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. You can learn more about Colleen at

  1. That was an amazing post, Colleen. I totall hear you. We need new beginnings or we get stuck. Which isn’t true actually because we get pushed from life anyway. But when we start new beginnings consciously we progress in a much higher level.

  2. It’s like always having something to look forward to – even if it’s only in your own head and the path is not yet clear. It’s all about anticipation. By the way – we covered our books with wallpaper. I found some school books years later and was horrified to see what we’d live with at that time. My mum still defended the garish orange and purple pattern!


    1. It is the excitement of something new and the challenge of accomplishment. Anticipation… what a great addition to the journey! Judith, the wall paper sounds so 1960’s! My step mother’s bathroom was pink, purple, and blue. I never saw something so hideous in my life! LOL! ❤


  3. I wholeHEARTedly agree with you, Colleen! Too many times, we are afraid to venture forth into new areas, but I believe new things, whether it be by traveling around the world or simply exploring different life paths, will keep us forever young. Much thanks for sharing…
