The Land Where I was Born
Pictures of my Mother; Mrs. Lillie Matheny Jones
Of the South~
Of Sun and of Accent,
Love and Hospitality,
Don’t know What it is but I Love it,
This Place Where I Was Born;
Just Can’t Figure Out What Caused It,
Excitement Wild and Wonder-ment,
Yet it Come’s Through Open-ness,
From Deep Within My Heart-True;
Where is One to Share This?
Walking in My Thought-set,
Freedom Bred, Crossing Over,
Making Life What We Want It;
Magnolia’s, Belles, and Life-styles,
Star-lit Dreams and Realities,
I must Accept its Existence,
No Matter What I Do;
I Left This Place I Speak Of ,
Went to The Farthest Place Away,
But I Could Not Hide My Love Pain,
For the Place Where I Was Born:
April 12, 1997

IN 2011 I moved back here to Monroeville, Alabama, and since being here, I have sought to belong. In many ways I already belong, due to being born here in the south, as well as having roots here with quite a few relatives, land, and memories from childhood. I am thankful that I do belong somewhere. If I had the finances, I would build my own little farm, or tiny plantation. Having many interests, I could maximize the size of my life by doing just a bit of each thing I like to do. Some of those things are flying, riding motorcycle, horticulture, hobby writing, woodwork, historical biblical events, and cooking. I also operate heavy equipment and do minor landscaping and monumental earthmoving every so often. So you see, there is lots to do here.
