Thank you for a much needed escape, Birmingham. Thank you for a perfect weekend via Sidewalk Film Fest.
Thank you for making these emotions seep out of pours. These deep seeded emotions. These long forgotten emotions. Thank you for opening my mind and eyes. Thank you for showing me who is and isn’t important. Thank you for making me listen to this record I purposely haven’t listened to in three years. Thank you for making these tears stream from my eyes. Thank you for showing me who has and hasn’t loved me. Thanks for showing me who I will love.
Most importantly, after 29 years of being lost, confused and wondering (and wandering) if I will ever have a home, thank you Birmingham. Thank you Alabama, for making me realize that I home. Alabama is, and always will be “where I’m from.”
Thank you. I love you, Alabama.
