It never ceases to amaze me that although I have lived in Ohio for decades, I can easily detect people from my home state of Mississippi. They may be a generation removed as their parents may have been the actual natives, but my eye can spot their Southern mannerism. I am usually accurate with my identification of their roots. I regard this assessment as a gift. It is a delightful observation to see the Southern illumination abroad; a pleasure it is indeed! As the saying goes, Southern hospitality “is not something one does, it’s the way one is.” Thank y’all for reading!
