    Wow, Ryan. I had no idea your were ventured away from teaching to explore your creativity in writing! Good for you! i still remember your beautiful eulogy you wrote about your dog and the lively and loving you displayed it. I’ll be looking for our book in the store and will share it with everyone! Good luck!

    Ryan, I have said it before and I will say it again: You are a remarkable guy with an incredible sense of self and awareness of the world around you. You are very much an inspiration to shlubs like me that all too often fall into the category of “the herded.” I admire the guts it has taken for you to trudge your own path in life instead of following an already beaten one or one previously laid out for you.

    When you are ready to share your heart and spirit with our youth again then contact me. Or if you just want to go fishing and need a partner.

    Fishing and surfing. A guy after my own heart.

    Nobody ever gives up teaching really. They just give up the paycheck. And anyway teaching and learning are swap-able — they interweave. But now you’ve broadened the process.

    I started out in Portland, OR, in October 1939 at Emanuel Hospital. I’m still working on this broadening-out thing. And now I’ll watch for you on the bookshelves.

    Best of everything, even best of the rain, to you.

      Thanks Mary. I do miss being in the classroom; sometimes I feel like I’m not GIVING. With a kiddo on the way, I’m sure that will change. I do know that if I didn’t make my creative aspirations a priority then I wouldn’t be in this position. I’ve been at this writing and video thing for six years now.

      I will pay another visit to your blog. At first glance I was amazed at the quality and quanitity. 1000 tight words a day is hard to do. It takes me forever to put together a tight piece. Cheers!
