~My Grandmother, the oldest member and Matriarch of my family recently moved west to be with us...and it dawned on me that, sadly, I have no reason to go back "home" again~


I miss

the smell of red clay
after rain

jumping barefoot in
muddy puddles

carefree

my cousins and me...

rolling in tall grass
wandering through
acres & acres of old
cotton fields

exploring
hiding places...

laying
claim to
secret spaces

in hollowed
out trees....

dipping skinny
in the "crick"....

getting bare-bottoms
whooped with the switch...

I miss

4 a.m. breakfast
before the sun
rose....

and being kissed on
my forehead
and my nose

every time Granddaddy

said good-bye

when I was 6

I thought
he'd never die...


I miss

977 N. 1st Street

where

Alabama love
was
honeysuckle sweet

under the sun
all the beautiful memories that never leave us no matter how old we are...

the simple pleasures, the special things, places and most of all people who have been a part of your life...the wonder of being loved and knowing it...

the reason we are who we are...

This is nice, memories of home

"Theres no place like home"
"theres no place like home"

them magic shoes and go back.....well done

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
