The subhead for this blog reads “School teacher, dad, homeowner turns superhero but has to learn his powers along the way.”
Lately I’ve had a weird sort of feeling about that. Like I’m supposed to explain what it means or something. And since, in my own mind, that would be a lot of work and I’m lazy, I’ve been thinking about just changing it.
I mean, it doesn’t really make sense, does it? Do I really think I’m all that superheroish? Better than?
I mean what’s easier, right? Creatively digging into my own psyche, searching for the reason I put that up there, and then figuring out a way to communicate that in a simple and (hopefully) entertaining way? Or just writing a new one.
Not sure to what I’d change it. Nothing great comes to mind.
My problem is, in a goofy kind of way, it kind of makes sense to me. But if I had to tell you why, I’d stumble all over myself. And there’s this odd sort of dissonance when I can’t explain something as basic as the subhead on my own blog.
Just makes me uncomfortable.
I have this nagging fear that some day, somebody’s going to ask me what the hell it means. And in all honesty, I’m not sure I could explain it.
My kung-fu is strong, but . . .
Anyway now I think my problem (big problem ‘eh? wish I had more problems like this one, right?) may be solved, because tonight I found a blogger who’s done it for me. Or at least come pretty darn close.
I think she comes pretty close to nailing it. I just stumbled on her blog tonight, but from what I can tell, it looks pretty good. She has a good message.
Her superhero post will inspire you to embrace the hero within and most likely recognize a reserve of strength you might not understand that you have.
Plus, anyone plugging Spiderman is cool in my book.
