Other songs on the album were inspired by students I had taught (Wannabee Cowboy) and by an experience while camping with my family (Tell Me Why).  Hard Line was inspired by a trip to the doctor to get my annual physical.  I'm Beside Myself was written in response to the English department's admonition to students to avoid cliches.  I took their list and tried to use as many of them as possible in one song just for fun. 

Standing at a Crossroads

Released 1996

Standing at a Crossroads (1996) came at a time of change in my life.  I was in the process of changing the focus in my teaching career, moving out of the area I had taught in for 22 years and increasing my class load in another area.  The title song was inspired by the difficulties I had moving out of my comfort zone and recognizing the fact that everybody goes through similar feelings anytime they make a big decision.
