It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to tell you – Mississippi is far different than New York. The hustled frenzy of New York City is my life, I live and breathe its energy every day. But there was a time that the lax, relaxed attitude of Mississippi was once a scene I called my home. My own secluded environment.
I traveled back to my homelands for the holiday season to see family, friends and places but most importantly to breathe again. New York City has my heart, but my soul lies in Mississippi. As much as you may have wanted to detach yourself from where you grew up, a piece of you will always remain behind. And sometimes – it’s actually refreshing to reunite with that piece every now and again. For me, I feel whole when I am visiting my home but I’m not satisfied. New York City satisfies my dreams and desires… while the fields of Mississippi farmlands makes me whole again.
