Every year since this blog started in 2002, I’ve marked September 11 with a moment of silence post, as acknowledgement that I don’t have anything to say that would be worth sharing with the Internet. This is the very first year that I’ve had any hesitation about it, because in addition to being a Very Bad Anniversary, this was also a happy day in Chateau Steelypips. This morning, we put SteelyKid on the bus to her very first day of kindergarten.
And, you know, that’s worth breaking tradition for. Really, it’s as good an excuse as any to retire the tradition altogether– it’s probably time to move on. Because, you know, life goes on, and while I still don’t have anything to say, pointedly not saying anything isn’t as important as it used to be. It’s time to let the past be the past, and focus on the future, where SteelyKid is going to school, and her world will continue to get more amazing every day.
