Back roads, corn fields, levees, peacefulness......this is my hood! The photo is the view a little further down the lane from my parents house. Sometimes there was corn planted in the field, cotton or soybeans. But this is basically what I saw everyday I looked outside my bedroom window. I definitely did not appreciate this view when I was younger. Most people here would say, "Ain't nothing round here. You gotta get away from here so you can do good". Well, I did just that.
