FIVE YEARS AGO
FIVE years ago. . . This morning I remember everything: every sound, feeling, thought, worry, tear and fear that I went through here at my house.
It's ironic that this morning is so quiet and peaceful feeling: The Cardinals are making their chipping sounds, misty rain is barely wetting the sidewalk, there is no wind, and a strange calmness is all around - such a contrast from what was here, in Oxford, 366 miles North of the totally devastated Mississippi Gulf Coast.
