This past week was my first true southern experience. I spent the first half of the week at a writer's conference in Asheville, North Carolina, and the weekend in Nashville, Tennessee (I promise the rhyming was unintentional.)
It was a good week, filled with conversations, people watching, and the phrase's ''y'all'' and "fixin''. I love seeing how other people live, and found the laid-back vibe of Nashville quite charming.
It's hard to believe, but in only five weeks I will be returning to the Africa Mercy for 6 months. I'm not sure where the time goes. But it is going.
I should probably start thinking about what I need to pack.... :)
