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:

IN 2011 I moved back here to Monroeville, Alabama,and have sought to belong. In many ways I already belong, due to being born in Mobile, Al,, as well as having roots placed with relatives, land, and memories from childhood. I am thankful that I do belong. If I had the finances, I would build my own little farm, or tiny plantation. Having many interests, I could maximize areas 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, painting, woodwork, historical biblical events, and cooking. I also operate heavy equipment and do minor landscaping and earth-moving every so often. So you see, there is lots for me to do here!
