Thank You, Stephen King!
Walking the Natchez Trace has been a lonely business, filled with thousands of minutes of angst. Of anger. Of discouragement.
Then Stephen King invited me to dinner.
I sat at a welcoming table with him and his wife. Over grilled salmon and asparagus with some of the best salad I’ve ever had, we talked about family. Connections. The historical challenges of the Natchez Trace. The diversity that can happen within the bounds of one state.
Oh, and we talked about my book, too.
I’m grateful to have been given a respite from the insides of hotel rooms, from the solitude of the great outdoors. Thank you, Stephen and Mary Howard, for making me feel normal for a few hours on a Friday night.
Stephen King is a veterinarian in Tupelo, Mississippi. I met him through my friendship with his sister, Angie King Keesee.
