I Once Had A Blog


Or should I say, A blog once had me? After several attempts to come back I'm finally here. I have missed you all. It has been a couple of weeks since I have blogged. I took some time off because I got two part time jobs and I did not have access to the Internet. Now I'm back. These few weeks I have missed your blogs, your passionate, living blogs. So full of joy and energy. I missed something I can only identify as the BEAUTY of blogging. For me, it has to do with sharing your crazy thoughts, searching for beauty (not the obvious harmonious one , but the inner one), letting your brain rage with luminous thunderstorms, and sitting down for coffee and blueberry muffins.
I wanted to come back earlier. I yearned for this little blogging joy. I hope you all have forgiven my absence. I was afraid I would come back and find myself with no followers to play cowboys with. Gladly, that's all over.

News: I am becoming a teacher. So a lot of hard work lies ahead. I'm partly scared and partly thrilled. 75% of the people I have told of my most recent vocation have looked me with sad and baffled eyes. They just do not understand why. A teacher?, Why?, Because.... I just want to stick my tongue out and tell them off. Because I believe. Because I have hopes. Because I refuse to be cynical. Because it is a rare honor and privilege to be a mentor, and educator. Because I care. Because there is joy in learning. Because there is beauty in growth. So grow up. Because I might grow up too.

Summer is here. The Texan sun is glaring. I am moving slow. I'm a bit sluggish with this hot weather but I like the deceleration. I also love having an AC and a cool glass of freshly brewed iced tea in my hand. Make it an ice cold beer better. I will put some Copeland on my iPod and pretend I am riding my horse, Pinko, across the Southern Plains. Here's looking at you fellow bloggers.

You are a sensitive and thoughtful person and I think it's wonderful that you want to be a teacher where you will be able to pass your wisdom on to other people. All the very best of luck to you!

Glad to see you back Cowboy! I've missed reading your posts. I think it's wonderful that you want to be a teacher! Many wonderful teachers impacted my life as a child and student, who (Thank God) negated and ultimately triumphed over the many bad ones I also had! I know that you will be one of the good teachers who last in their students' memories all their lives.

You have been missed! A teacher is a most wonderful thing to be. Don't listen to the naysayers. I think you have found your calling. Jump in with your whole heart!
You have so much to share.

i for one think that you would make an absolutely fabulous teacher! Really and truly, as you have such a passion and truth about you, not to mention your beautiful way with words... Come to think of it, you kinda already are, now you just need to step into it... Go for it Cowboy and hear us all cheering you on X:-)

I think you will be an excellent teacher, of any age classroom.

And I'll have to admit, although the pink kitchen was cute, the boots are oh-so-cool.

I'm raising an icy cold beer to you, Pink. Happy to see you back. The bloggyhood wasn't the same without you.

Oh it is just fabulous to hear from you all. It is truly like visiting good ol'friends...and you all are!!!

Float above the cynicism. It is what the world needs. The little humans will be lucky to have you as a teacher.

Obviously I am reading posts backwards today.

I am so excited that you will be a teacher! I think you are already but now you will be paid to do it. Your future students will be very lucky indeed.

Can't wait to hear more.
