The whole world is underwater.
The places where I grew up, the places where I lived as a young man, the places I have been writing about all my life.
The places where people I love live.
The places that fill my dreams.
Richlands and Trenton, Pollocksville, Newport and New Bern. Wilmington, Burgaw and Lumberton. Engelhard, Belhaven and Washington.
I am thinking about you all. I am keeping you in my prayers. I am holding you all in my heart.
