I am a long way from home, Toto!!!
I grew up in a petite community (Bolivar) that was three miles from a petite town of 300+ (Benoit) that was 35 miles from the small city of Greenville, Mississippi. One rural blacktop road skirted the edge of my parent’s farmland; our streets and avenues were the turn rows in the cotton field and the gravel road that zippered down the levee’s spine! Ecuador is a long way from the Mississippi Delta, though my little adopted town of Jama reminds me a lot of life on a farm once upon a time in a land far away.
