Start of something new

Happy Monday! It’s the start of a new week. And even a new year for some (L’shana tova fo those who celebrate!). That thought is all it took to cue up this earworm of a High School Musical song (“Start of Something New”). If you haven’t seen it, I will happily watch #HSM with you. I saw it in college and then made everyone I knew watch it with me. I am really not joking. It was a thing. I am much more of a book person, but something about this campy Disney made-for-TV movie tickled me to the core. I’m pretty sure I count as a solid 1 million of the 225 million viewers Wikipedia says have seen the movie. I hope your week is as on point as Troy Bolton on a basketball court.
