Recently I bought a bunch of books to jar my memory about what it is to be "southern".
If I had just waited a couple of weeks I could have saved my money and bookcase shelf space. This week-end at the National Storytelling Festival I heard a great description of "being southern" - -which sums up a lot of my experiences and peculiarities.
"Southerners trot out their strange relatives and tell stories about them>" Kathyryn Wyndham.
Ain't that the truth!
She went on:
"I know someday they will be telling stories about me - - so I am leaving a trail"
Think about it!
Get to work.
Telling or marking your trail.
