Everyone who hasn’t been to Mississippi has a mental picture of the place. People are entitled to their opinions, even if they’re based on fiction.
I’ve been in and through Mississippi dozens of times. The things I’ve seen there run the gamut but the best experiences involve spending time with artists in their studios and places of inspiration.
Later today, I’ll be passing through again. My transit will be pretty short; Corinth to Tupelo, then east on I-22 to the Alabama border.
I won’t be that far from Cindy Aune’s studio on this trip. If you want to update your perception of what goes on in Mississippi, check her out.
