Still fooling with words, and taking risks
I took a detour alright. I was on my way to a teaching career. I was on my way to stability. I couldn’t sit still. That’s what I told myself. Instead, I ran away. I ran to Minnesota. I was a teacher in Marietta, GA and I hated it, so I ran away. First, to Charleston, SC and then to Minneapolis, MN. It’s not a glamorous life by any means, but I enjoy it. I’m an AmeriCorps member, and I make a difference. I don’t make a salary, but I make a difference.
