The Wolves of Insignificance From the Door, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“Everybody needs his memories. They keep the wolf of insignificance from the door.” ~ Saul Bellow ~ “ I was going through my portable hard drive this morning and rediscovered this image. It’s one of my favorites…I love doors, they hold mysteries behind their closed portals in my opinion. I apologize if you have seen… Continue reading The Wolves of Insignificance From the Door, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Accidental Tourists, by Beverly Hicks Burch

This past summer Tall & Handsome and I had an occasion to make a trip to Savannah, GA. Savannah is a lovely city and there are reminders of the truly old, deep South every where. It is a city of living history. It is also a city of parks…old parks, many built on squares. This… Continue reading Accidental Tourists, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Grab a Tall Glass of Sweet Tea, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Could anything possibly scream old Deep, Deep South more than this picture? Clues? The old Southern live oak trees (quercus virginiana). And the Spanish Moss.

It tends to favor warm, humid conditions and that’s why it’s so… Continue reading Grab a Tall Glass of Sweet Tea, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Doorway to the Past, by Beverly Hicks Burch

I have a thing about old doors. They’re kind of like walls…if only they could talk. But, in the case of doors, who has passed back and forth over their threshold? What have they held out and shut in, created safe harbor for, or what kind of secrets have they kept secret? This door was… Continue reading Doorway to the Past, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Look What They’ve Done…, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Years ago there was a song that had the lyrics…”look what they’ve done to my song, Ma…” I can’t help but hear that song in my head when I see this old Savannah home/building. Located not too far from Telfair Square, I’m sure in it’s heyday it was considered, well, at least something more than… Continue reading Look What They’ve Done…, by Beverly Hicks Burch
