My Texas Is Showing

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    Oh no you didn’t. Did you THINK I wouldn’t read this??? How dare you question Tom’s ability to play Hank?!?!? Shocked. Horrified. Etc.

    Teasing. It’s not an uncommon question and I understand your concerns.

    Having said that, quite seriously I have no doubt in Tom’s ability to pull this off. He has an incredible work ethic and quite a lot of talent. I’m certain he and all involved in the project, including Rodney Crowell, will make sure the performance will indeed make you eat these words. Hope they taste good. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Sorry I missed again today. We got gifted tickets last minute for Rudolph the Musical at Bass Hall. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ok. I did respond to this yesterday but apparently it was eaten by something. What I had said was that I sort of wrote this with you in mind the whole time. I knew you’d call me out on it. But I couldn’t help it. It was what went through my mind and I had to write about it. ๐Ÿ™‚
      And I’m not truly questioning his ability…ok, maybe I am. But I would question anyone playing Hank who just might not know who Hank is. Even if it is someone I respect and am a fan of. I would question Hank’s own son. Maybe not as much but still….you get what I’m saying.
      I have no doubt I will be eating my words, and I have no problem doing just that. I don’t have a problem admitting when I’m wrong, and I think I just might enjoy being wrong about this. I do love my Brits, you know. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      As for group, we really need to talk. It’s important and you need to be caught up with some information.
      Hope to see you at the next one.
