I spent several of my formative years in Noble, Oklahoma. It was an awesome place to grow up. We moved there when I was eight and left just before I turned fourteen. It was one of those little towns that didn't even have a stop light. The business section of town was about one block long and we lived six miles outside of town on a forty acre parcel of land with my grandparents and most of my siblings at one point or another.
I love the heavy air and the smell of a storm coming in. I love the music of the cicadas lulling me to sleep each night. I love the casual nature and sweet southern drawl of everyone around me and I miss good fried okra.
Almost twenty five years since I left and Oklahoma is still the home of my heart.
