There’s never any highway when you’re looking for the past
The land becomes a memory and it happens way too fast
Saturday was an amazing day. The weather in Mississippi was picture perfect. Out itinerary was full, so we got an early start. Our route took us through the Tallahatchie Wildlife Refuge, down Money Road into Greenwood, across to Indianola, then to Sunflower, Drew, Tutwiler, and finally Clarksdale. I have decided to let the pictures tell the story, as the blues markers already have the history. One thing I could not photograph accurately was the expansiveness of the Delta region. I have seen for miles in the Florida Everglades and the deserts of Arizona–but there is nothing like the endless miles of cotton fields found in the rich and beautiful area. All day I just breathed in the expansiveness of it as we drove the Mississippi byways, listening to delta-inspired music by Bobbie Gentry and Roseanne Cash, and seeking for the past in our very real present.
