For the book's sake though. I have finished the content. Alen is working away on the design and I am working away on the posters. Which has been a lovely change from roaming around kingdom come and settling for a second in Athens. Also, I realize all of my interactions now, are just grist for a new book to come. That this project is shifting and creating a second volume as we speak.
I am new to Southern culture. I seem to put my foot in my mouth more than if I was in states I had lived before. Also, I try to speak more from the heart and worry less about people will think. Which is hard for a people pleaser.
A cool effect of the project, is getting to hold hands more. :)
So around Athens there has been some spontaneous hand holding.
First with Daniel,
Darin and showed up at the bar and Daniel and I had a great chat about snow. Daniel is studying in Chicago and is from Georgia so it was fun to hear a southern poet's feelings and images of snow. Including how ungly it can become when it turns grey and dog pissed stained. Someone who understands the many shades and emotions of snow. It isn't always a christmas card bleach white....it holds more than that....
