I love Southern Comfort Zone by Brad Paisley. So much so, I made my kids listen to it repeatedly on a trip through the American south a few years back. They will never be the same, and they tell me so every time I bring it up. The song brings up a good reminder for … Continue reading What’s your southern comfort zone?
The title is a little misleading. I don't believe in purgatory. But this isolation during the Covid-19 isolation may change my mind.
