Columbus

Living in Columbus, Mississippi has been such an interesting experience for me. I say “interesting,” because I cannot honestly say I enjoyed every minute of it. It was challenging at times. The culture is different. Things can feel too slow (everything closed on Sunday), but also too fast (fast food and chain restaurants everywhere). I learned much here over the past couple of years, traveling back and forth to this place. And I made some wonderful friends. Some people thought I was crazy to do this; I would do it again. This is America, real and raw.

Back in Columbus, Mississippi, along the River Walk. We came across a tiny garden, swarming with hundreds of beautiful butterflies. Unexpected and wonderful.

We took two pontoon boats on on the river this weekend. It was a real life country song; boats, beer, grilling, river banks, floating, friends. This really feels like The South; this is experiencing the real Mississippi.

Taking business calls along four miles of the Columbus Riverwalk today. Any excuse to be outside for the sunset.

Market Street Festival, Columbus, Mississippi. Fried gator. Live Gospel music. Southern charm. 

Southern Spring

Southern Spring feels like summer. I wish I could record and share smell. The flowers here are wonderful.
