Big in Memphis

The March issue of Memphis Magazine has a two-page article about me and my inky endeavours. It's a nice little piece, and I don't think I sound like a total idiot in it, which is always a risk with phone interviews. I've often promised myself to instate an "email only" interview rule. I like being able to consider my thoughts in an email, and make sure I'm accurately representing myself. With an article based on a phone interview, it's a wobblier proposition and I usually end up feeling like I'm reading someone else's words. Did I really say "revelatory?" Is that a word I use?

But then a reporter calls, and I get all flustered, and I agree to pretty much whatever they want.

Anyway, it's a nice article.

We just got our copy of Memphis in the mail today (family sends it) Wes and I enjoyed it :)

Paige,

Why does the idea of mailing a copy of Memphis Magazine to New York strike me as funny? It's not like sending coal to Newcastle... it's more like sending Velveeta to Camembert.

Congratulations, you just made my husband laugh his ass off!

Well, there are definitely some things about Memphis I miss that are hard to understand unless you grew up there.. but there are things that are easy to understand- I really miss all of the greenery, friends/family, and real genuine barbeque!

I can dig it. Home is home is home is home, and nothing is ever as sweet as it is in our memories of home. The mocking laughter of carnies, the slop of gruel in a bucket, the bittersweet sting of the ringmaster's whip... ah, home.

Sometimes blogger can just be persnickety.
