Why I Live Here
I live here because:
Mr. C. grew up here. I crack up every time I hear one of his old friends call him by his childhood nickname.
Women dress up cement goose statues with Lil costumes. They compete over whose goose has the cutest outfit.
Our children learned to sail here.
I can see the Gulf of Mexico everyday.
All parts of this community need good, insightful, honest help to improve.
I grow tropical plants, almost year round.
I can smell salt air when I step outside. I hear seagulls sing often enough that I don't notice them. Pelicans fly in formation overhead.
This state has the worst health and education statistics in the nation. As I said, every area of the community needs help. We don't run out of necessary things to do.
Mr. C. lives here.
Just thinking about my blessings,
