More and more and more semi-fixtures, those who visit the Mississippi Delta over and over and over from far away places, leaving a piece of themselves each time, which nags and perplexes, drawing them back to find whatever it was they left, are taking a blind leap of faith and following that inner voice that beckons them to move here. Permanently. The Mississippi Delta, my home, where I was born and raised, touches souls and, I believe, God is all up in that. You may think it’s about the blues, but you will find it is something much more complex.
