Daily Dose

From South to a Very Old Place, by Albert Murray


"You also find time to sit and listen to what some of the very oldest among old heads from the old days want to tell you about the condition of contemporary man in general and about the state of the nation's political well-being in particular.  Because missing that part, which is always like coming back to the oldness of the old chimney corner even in summer, would be perhaps even worse than missing another chance to sit down to a full-course spread of old-time home cooking once more."

From Chapter 5, Mobile
