Opening Manifesto

Finally. I've been thinking about this for months. A blog. A photo-journal of being home. I've journaled assiduously from three different countries and multiple globe trots. Yet whenever I'm home the journaling dries up to a trickle. It's time to commemorate home. I'm here for a while - it's time to take it on board with the devotion normally reserved for other lands.

To be honest, the big hang-up getting started was the title. I thought about it long and hard. I even canvased a few friends. Everything sounded like a band name. Either self-indulgent Emo band or campy Southern Pride band or erudite overly fond of diverse cultural references band. All aspects of me, but did I want to own up to that? So I've gone with the name of my home state instead. Subtle, no? But happily general. Whew, I'm up and running...

So is this the place to get all the celebrity gossip?
