That Elusive and Important First Line...

I don’t have time to write a long post, but I have a question for you, my dear readers. In re-writing the beginning of my memoir, I am trying to decide on a first line. Will you let me know which of the following lines you find more compelling?

  1. A light rain fell as the procession wove its way up the narrow lane to the cemetery, where each horse halted at the next available slot by the hitching post.
  2. The day of my mother’s funeral, I bought myself an Amish bonnet.

Thank you in advance for your help. I’ll be back with another short post before departing on our journey on Saturday.
