Colophon Cover image was a public domain photograph, taken circa 1910, courtesy of The Library Of Congress.  This post was inspired by The Writer’s Manifesto: Stop Writing to Be Read & Adored, written by Jeff Goins.

6th Grade, And Other Mishaps

Sixth grade started like any other year of public school, except for the fact that my teacher had received word that I was a, "gifted student", and therefore, expected more of me than most of the other students in my grade.  Public school was a breeze, and getting good grades never required any sort of work whatsoever, so I was anticipating 6th grade to be a breeze.  From day 1, it was a nightmare.

There is so much going on within the confines of my own mind.  All through the day, empty thoughts fill my ears, at night, dreams and visions of things and situations never to become reality play before my eyes.  Often times there is a fire storm of thoughts like a freight train running through my head, other times, a lonely and uncomfortable silence takes over.  The thoughts linger; empty ones for a brief period of time, while those which are important and meaningful seemingly fleeting.
