Rowena O'Hara

So I just spent a very lovely weekend in South Carolina and it was my first foray into that region. Wow, Margaret Mitchell really wasn't joking around. Hot, still days...lush palmettos and jungly sprays, sluggish swamps and lagoons. It was a whole new world for me and I fell in love. I didn't even mind the humidity and the 18,436 different bugs that attacked me (well okay, I did a little). But I could get used to a life like that...exchanging friendly hello's with neighbors, trips into town for groceries, quiet nights on the porch with just a book and a cool drink. Even the intermittent thunderstorm would serve as a welcome break from the languidness. It's just a whole other life that I never imagined for myself until now.

No more NYC for Ro?

Who knows? I may just give up my swanky closet of an apartment here in NYC and saunter on down to the South.

Don't know where you visited in SC. Hope you had a chance to go to Brookgreen Gardens (as I am imagining you probably went to one of three places: Myrtle BEach, Charleston, or Hilton Head area). If you ever decide to come south, don't stay in publishing (unless you are doing the writing), because it pays even worse down here (and I know this from experience).
