Here's a little something
to think about
as we embark on the
"Sense of Place" contest.

Photos of dead mules need not apply!
Oh, this one? He's restin'.

Thank yew to this hilarious post
from SFP at Pages Turned!
She did a little background check on "southernness"
which turned up this jewel by Jerry Leath Mills.

...there is indeed a single, simple, litmus-like test for the quality of southernness in literature, one easily formulated into a question to be asked of any literary text and whose answer may be taken as definitive, delimiting, and final. The test is: Is there a dead mule in it?

What a fun post! I'm listening to the audiobook of Their Eyes Were Watching God (Ruby Dee narrates it and it's amazing to listen to!) and, sure enough, there's a dead mule in it. :)
