Driving America’s back roads allows one to slow down. For one thing, the speed limits are much lower than out there on the frenetic, noisy and billboard littered interstates. But more importantly, the mind will slow down too. The rural South hasn’t changed much in the past half century, and that is a good thing. The land is still farmed as it has been for generations. Cotton, corn, peanuts and soy beans are planted and harvested. Conversations center around the weather and church. The battle against the Kudzu invasion continues (but that is another story.)
The next several posts will have images of the Sleepy South. Please check back often.
