More Talking Southern

I’m thinking a lot about home today. Facebook Memories reminded me of a video I posted on May 20, 2012. It filled my heart with so much nostalgia—in the true sense, the way Alan Cheuse described it over and over in Forms of Fiction. Nóstos (homecoming) + álgos (pain/ache.) Today, I am aching for home.

The first story I ever submitted for workshop was in 2003 or so, in my undergraduate Intro to Fiction. It was the last time I wrote about the South for over a decade.
