The colors, sights, and sounds of the South

I just returned from working in a region of the U.S. that I haven’t visited in decades – in fact, not since I was a small child. The South; specifically, Georgia and the state in which I was born – South Carolina. The people are welcoming and hospitable in a way that is synonymous with, and can only be described as being “southern.”

A world of screened-in porches, fried green tomatoes, and kind-hearted people who always have time for a story and a laugh.

A place where conversation and low-country cooking are art forms of a by-gone era: both created and tended with an ingredient so refined and vital that it cannot be imitated or faked  – Time.

In the south, people are serious about their history, church music, pride, and sweet tea. These are people, and this is a place, that I have to return to visit again very soon.

“These are the quicksilver moments of my childhood I cannot remember entirely. Irresistible and emblematic, I can recall them only in fragments and shivers of the heart.”  Pat Conroy, The Prince of Tides
