By Magical Madge –

A Delta Roadtrip is something I have done all my life. Being born and raised in the Mississippi Delta, traveling the highways from town to town is something we grew up doing over and over and over again. During high school, it was what we did when not in school. We would ride around town, be it Clarksdale, Marks, Lambert, Tutwiler, Sumner, to see who else was out riding around.

Marilyn Trainor Storey, the MS Design Maven and interior decorator for the Delta Bohemian Guest House, was also born in Clarksdale but raised in Quitman County, adjacent to Tallahatchie County where I was raised. We both relish our Delta travel time when our minds slow down and our eyes rest on the passing horizon with its distinctively defined the tree line.

It doesn’t surprise me the creative Maven has helped draw Clarksdale Mayor Bill Luckett and Helena Mayor Jay Hollowell together for a Delta Roadtrip, specifically linking the two cities for a festival of sorts October 2-3, 2015.
