City of Amathar Banner Change
I've changed the banner of City of Amathar Blog. For the past two a half years it has said "The Official Blog of School Teacher / Novelist Wesley Allison." I have changed it to "The Official Blog of Author Wesley Allison." This is not because I've given up being a teacher. I haven't. Nor is it because I'm not still proud to be a teacher. I am. But I've decided I can't blog about being a teacher. I just don't have it in me. I can't shout into the wind anymore. Teachers have gone from being underappreciated to being the scapegoats and whipping boys of politicians, pundits, and commentators who don't have a clue. I'll continue to do my best, for more, with less. But after I get home from work, I'm not going to carry it with me anymore. From now on, when I get home I'm no longer Mr. Allison. I'm just Wesley Allison.
