Hey! I’m glad you’re here! This post is part of a 31 Day writing challenge hosted by The Nester. During the month of October, I’m writing on Southern A Way of Life. I will be back to my ‘regular’ posts in November. Consider pushing that follow button to the right for all my latest posts. Thanks y’all!
As I wrote the posts for this series, I began to ponder: Have we, the South, lost our identity? I don’t know if I can fully answer that question. I know that the South that I experienced as a child is not the South of today. That being said, I do live in a more urban environment than I did as a child, so perhaps, my impression is slightly altered.
Like everywhere, progress improves some things in a way you wish it didn’t and sometimes, you don’t realize it until, what was there is gone. Global homogenization. That’s what the experts call it. The pundits who watch and assess our culture.
The South has prided itself on being set apart and having it’s own identity. I’m hoping that we will retain those things that make us unique and not lose the essence of who we are. I’m, also, hoping that we will continue to let go of those things that have tarnished and damaged us as a culture and move forward stronger than ever.
To celebrate Halloween, I have a blooper video for you today.
We have covered a lot of ground in the last 31 Days. If you would like to catch up on all the posts in this series from the very beginning, click here.
Thank you, dear reader, for dropping in and spending your precious time with me. I really appreciate it. You make my day : )
What’s your take on global homogenization?
