I’ve looked at my unemployed situation now from many angles over the past few months. There were times when I questioned my own decision to move on from my teaching job. It was close to home, I had invested in the materials needed, gone back to school to better prepare myself for it, most importantly, I loved the kids I worked with.
Was this all in vain? I wondered these same wonders again as I made Scott’s lunch for his first day back at school. From now until next June he was again Coach Scott, P.E. Teacher at one of our local elementary schools. It was the first time only one of us would leave for work. The silence of this small house was about to be amplified in my companion’s absence.
And I was going to write; write about anything and everything! I was going to surf until my legs were sore and my wax melted off! I was going to make more short films! I would follow my heart down this unbeaten path and no one’s opinion was going to change that!
