Home Is (DEFINITELY ) Where My Heart Is !

My name is Patricia Neely-Dorsey. I am from Tupelo, Mississippi... located in the beautiful red clay "Hills" of Mississippi and yes, the birthplace of Elvis Presley!

I am the author of two books of poetry: 

Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia -A Life In Poems.

My Magnolia Memories and Musings -In Poems
.I call both books a true celebration of the south and things southern.   There are so many negative connotations associated with Mississippi and the south in general. 

I try to give a positive glimpse into my home state and region.  There is much to love about this much maligned and misunderstood part of our country.   I invite readers to get to KNOW Mississippi (and the south) in a different light I invite EVERYONE to Meet Mississippi Through Poetry, Prose and the written word.

I travel all around my state speaking at schools, churches, libraries and various civic organizations, delivering the message of a positive Mississippi and a positive southern experience....According to me, one of the best places to live in ALL of the world is POSITIVELY MISSISSIPPI !!!

  1. There is absolutely NO place like Mississippi! It is and forever will be my home!! :)

  2. I have never been to Mississippi, but I've heard good things about it. Your poetry is amazing and I would love to win one of your poetry books.

    For me home is that place where I am loved, where I can be myself. It is somewhere comfortable, like warm and fuzzy slippers. It is where I feel safe, cared for and comforted. It used to be where ever my mother lived, but now that she is gone, it's my own home. I host all the holiday gatherings and love it.

    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win. <^_^>

    1. Thanks so much ! SO glad you enjoyed the poems !

  3. I am also a southerner...transplanted. I've lived in the South now for about 25 years--but never in Mississippi. I'm in NC now and we've been getting some snow tonight...which is a VERY unusual circumstance here in southeastern NC near the beach!
