It was just sitting there outside my front doorstep. But it was the most beautiful thing I had seen all day, nay, perhaps even all week. It was perfect or at least close enough to it. It’s little fluffy seeds glistened in the evening light as I peered at it from my doorway. I couldn’t believe it– a completely whole dandelion. I hadn’t seen one that was completely untouched in years. In retrospect, it probably wasn’t even that great. But for some reason, seeing that little dandelion just sitting there gave me hope.
I had to tell someone. I tried telling my best friend, but she didn’t quite grasp what I was trying to say. It was useless to try I knew. But I still wanted to somehow. I still had to tell someone, anyone. I took a picture to share later, and I made my wish. I felt a twinge of regret as I watched the pieces fly away. As it flew away that dandelion made me realize something very important: I have something to say. Not just about the dandelion but about anything, EVERYTHING.
Before I could talk myself out of it or make excuses I made this blog. Because I do have something to say. Like the blog title says, they don’t teach you everything, and we only have one life. So there you go world. My name is Savannah Cleckler, and I approve of this message.
P.s: The dandelion is now my featured image above, if you were curious. 😉
