Texas, Our Texas

The opening words to the state song of Texas. Not, as many non-Texans think, "the eyes of Texas are upon you" though that's probably a catchier tune.

I was born and raised in Texas. This year marks a significant shift in my life. I have now lived continuously in Kansas longer than I have lived anywhere else, including my beloved home state. I'm thinking of myself as a Kansan more and more. I'm even losing my twang...though I still toss out a "ya'll" when I speak.

They say that there are two types of people; those that live in Texas and those who wish they lived in Texas.

I like Kansas....but if I had my druthers....
