I’m a sucker for sweet southern writing – the kind that glorifies grandmothers, reminisces about time gone by (even if it was just yesterday), and speaks to the heart in a secret language I’ve never quite learned, despite all the time spent listening. Perhaps reading Emily Carter’s blog, A Chicks View, will finally imbue me with the ability to speak this native tongue. If not, it was still time well spent. She writes beautifully, and if you get the chance to hear her read her work, it will bring you to tears. She shared this gem at one of our meetings recently, and it’s priceless. You’ve been warned and hopefully, inspired.
