romanticizing poverty

Here in the south we like to handpick the pink cotton candy in the mornings before the heat takes hold.
Otherwise, it melts in our hands.

Yesterday I read this article and the comments which followed.

I have this friend who talks about a childhood within economic and social hardships very few Americans could understand today. He has a third grade education and is one of the most brilliant people I know. When considering the issue of poverty I'd much rather listen to him than any economist.

Today I am grateful for how romantic this place is.

What a beautiful mind you have, love the way you capture the light and put it in words.
