It's a quiet Sunday morning, sunny & clear. Shadows from the cedars and live oaks are dappling the white picket fence around the graveyards across Howard Street. I am listening to "The Best of Molasses Creek." My son-in-law is playing his fiddle and singing one of my favorite songs, "Howard Street."
"Past & present, they join hands around this magic place," he sings. So true!
