I vaguely remember hearing that NBA players never wear the same pair of sneakers twice at games. Not sure if that story is a fable or not but I rather fancied the idea. It left me fascinated with the notion of being given new artillery for each new battle.
New. It’s a concept we can’t really process as a result of the diminished value once we pull off a car dealership’s lot and smear fingerprints across the window of every new experience we touch.
Conditioned to sing about “mercies, new every morning” according to Biblical scriptures and life experience; I can’t say I remember the last time “new” really felt new…for me.
So I open the floor and pose a question: What does the phrase “brand new” mean to you?
If not here, then in your journal make the result of your reflections known🌹e
