For those of you who don’t know, I’m from a small, no-traffic-light town in Northeast Louisiana called St. Joseph. On more than one occasion, especially while traveling in well-heeled circles, people have asked me if St. Joseph is in the Virgin Islands.
There are however some similarities to island living. For instance if I run out of ink or thread, I have to either drive 60 miles or wait two days for Amazon to deliver. All it takes for me to realize that printer ink is not so important is a sunset cruise on Lake Bruin. The gorgeous oxbow lake was formed eons ago when the mighty Mississipp’ changed course, leaving behind this azure jewel for us to enjoy.
