Today is National Poet's Day


Promoting what I LOVE

It NEVER ceases to amaze me how people can run down, complain about,
and spew out all types of negatives toward the South and Mississippi
and that is not a problem, but when one dares to say that there are actually things 
to love  about our region, it becomes a problem.  It's seen as being dismissive of deeper issues. Just because you promote the positives, does not mean that you don't acknowledge the negatives .
There are always TWO sides ( or more) to every story...Two sides of every coin.
There is good and bad in all of us. There are good AND bad aspects of any place on the planet .

Why is it wrong...or threatening to proclaim that there are actually some
wonderful things ... things to LOVE...  things that I LOVE about the south and
about Mississippi??!!!

SMG (Shaking my head) !!!

It absolutely blows my mind!

Well, just in case ANYONE missed it or misunderstood ...

In my poems....on my blog. and in my life ...........

I am Always , Always Celebrating the South and Promoting a Positive Mississippi.
