[#796 – #777]: “Talihina Sky” Kings of Leon

Watching the doc “Talihina Sky” made me think of what it was like to grow up with a mother who was all about the Bible and leading a life for God away from the devil down in Georgia.  I was ready to run always, waiting for my first taste of freedom away from the life of a Sunday School girl. After watching the Kings of Leon’s story coming from a similar place made me think different and how lucky I was to have that. A foundation in the south. I might have gone out to Miami and dabbled around and partied a little harder than my mother would approve, but at the end of the day I’m still the little girl from Redan Elementary, chasing rabbits and eating honey suckles. No matter where I am, no matter who Im with, no matter what Im wearing, its still the same old me. Sometimes I need a reminder. For now it will be this song, because the second you forget your roots is the second you forget who you are.
