Welcome to the Celebrate the South Blog Tour

Patricia Neely-Dorsey

Hello Friends!

Thank you so much for sharing with me in a "Celebration of the South"through Poetry, Prose and The Written Word. I think that you are in for a real treat!

Over the next week, April 5-11, we will explore poems from my book, Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia- A Life in Poems.

There will ,also, be interviews, reviews and blogs that will offer new insights at every turn.
It is my sincere hope that those who live in the south will find a renewed appreciation for the wonderful beauty that surrounds us everyday.

For those outside of the south, I would like to give a more positive glimpse into the southern way of life. I know that we will ALL be reminded of the simpler pleasures of life.

As we travel down the country roads of childhood memories, personal thoughts and dreams, I am sure that you will (almost) be able to smell those fragrant magnolia blossoms, taste that syrupy sweet tea, hear the birds singing in the blossoming dogwood trees, and see the steam rising from that pan of hot cornbread.

You are about to embark upon a journey that is sure to excite your senses and warm your heart.

Thank you Again, for accompanying me , while I share with you, as the last line of one of my poems proclaims, "a way of life that I adore."
