“Gone to Texas”

Bit of a surprise, this one?

I said before how Star Wars was probably my first fandom. Yeah, it’s actually Texas.

I was born here, but left when I was three. But my family never let me forget where I came from.

My first tattoo was one of Texas. I do not hesitate to claim her as my homeland and when I talk about my hometown with my family and friends, I refer to it as ‘back home’.

I know our representation at the moment is not a sterling one. But we have had extraordinary people in our history, forward thinkers, and like to think we will again.

But my loyalty remains to the land and the ideals. To the great things we have done and accomplish. My viewpoint is not entirely through rose-colored glasses. I am realistic and honest about the less noble things.

I have lived thirteen times longer here in the Valley then I did back home. And still don’t really claim Arizona in the same way I claim Texas.
