I grew up in the country of Mississippi, and no matter how far away I go my heart is always in my parents' land. I know every tree, every gully, every hiding place.
I believe that it's not an adventure without a measure of discomfort.
I grew up with 8 dogs, 4 cats, 4 horses and a fish. All but 2 of the horses were strays.
I love to cook for people and to serve up something that I loved creating.
Nature is paramount in my life and my greatest source of recharging.
I love telling stories...and like any good southerner exaggeration does seem to sneak into the older ones.
I'm utterly incapable of taking myself seriously...a ridiculous person so why hide it?
Like my grandpa before me, I've never been ashamed of my tears.
Okay, so that was more of a laundry-list than a summary I suppose, but it's hard not to be self-depricating in these things and that didn't seem like the best way forward.
