Remember when I was holding my breath to find out if I was going to be hired at the newspaper? I had forgotten that pins and needle, suffocating excitement. It was butterflies in my stomach for a month while I waited. Then I got word, I had the job.
Nearly two years later, I still feel like I have the best job of my life. It’s never boring, always teaching me something and every week I get the chance to make people smile. Today’s Throwback Thursday is from Jan. 31, 2013 – A Love Affair with Newsprint.
Here’s an excerpt:
Every time was the same – I thrilled to see my words sifted from my constantly churning mind to be distilled and made made real on the soft paper. I loved the way the newsprint smudged on my fingers as if the thoughts captured there were literally rubbing off on the readers. I adored seeing our little town caught in a weekly time capsule. Each edition was a snapshot of life for us.
