The Week that Was

Looking back over the week

footprints old houseWet footprints

I walk on the porch where six generations of my people have stepped.

I’m at the Old House on the edge of Crooked Bayou Swamp.

It’s a place of solitude as well as loneliness.

I need both in my life.

It’s where I go back to get my feet back on the ground.

Where I leave wet footprints in the steps my people have trod.
