I attribute the unexpected reprise to, last week, having written my first blog in about six months and then yesterday loading up 31 more blank templates for this Story Challenge. Goin' back to the Slice of Life writing community, sponsored by Two Writing Teachers, evidently puts a song in my heart to start our March together.

Write back where I started - 3.01 #sol20 Story Challenge
One of my alma mater's school songs features this two-word refrain: "Going back." It's burrowed into my memory thanks to an unseemly number of college hours spent playing Ultimate Frisbee when, as pre-tournament cheer, teammates and I would shout the tune's chorus. Players who long predated us had made a few editorial changes to the sanctioned lyrics -- the least of which being contracting that first gerund to the easier to shout 'goin'.' I'd permanently muted that ear worm decades ago, I thought, until I found myself humming the melody Saturday during a walk in the woods.
