OakTwigWithJellyFungusAndLichens_COPY_2015-12-17_13.20.37

This fungus-covered twig fell out of one of the massive water oaks that line most of Hillside’s streets. Many of these century-old trees have become weak and diseased due to storms and drought. They meet their sad ends in the teeth of city work crew chainsaws.

Some streets, such as Jefferson and South Lee, have small crape myrtles planted in the shadow of three-foot-wide stumps. Others just scorch under the summer sun. Not even the shocking bright ruffles of crape myrtle blooms can replace the oaks’ shady, peaceful refuge, now long hauled away.

BulletHolesEitherWay_COPY_2015-06-16_19.31.07_HDR-1

At this shot-up sign, County Road 20 dead-ends near Rock Mills, Alabama, into State Highway 22. Years ago, just behind this sign, a rickety shack once balanced on stilt-like pillars. How no car ever missed the road’s end and crashed into that house, I will never know.

I was born in Randolph County. My childhood home is about three miles from this intersection; my grandmother’s childhood home, demolished in the 1980s, was just half a mile from here. My sister and I grew up with our grandparents about seven miles away in Glenn, Georgia.

All three places say “Home” to me.

Notes from the Past

RSWilliamsClassNotes5June1995_COPY_2015-06-04_17.00.41-1

Twenty years ago today, I sat in a University of Georgia classroom taking brief end-of-term notes on final portfolio requirements. The seminar instructor, Dr. Christy Desmet, remains one of my all-time favorite professors. No, I don’t know how I managed to save this notebook for two decades.

Former Masonic Lodge, Roanoke, Alabama

FormerMasonicLodgeRoanokeAlabama_IG_COPY_2015-03-14

This three-story office building is among the tallest in town (built early 1900s). My heart breaks to see it in such poor condition—many upper-story windows broken completely out, ceilings collapsing, chinaberry saplings growing between bricks and out of the top of the façade. With any luck, I’ll eventually gain permission from the owner to venture inside and document this beauty in ruins. The cornerstone indicates it was built to serve as a Masonic lodge.

The best way to ensure your crème hair color mixes completely with your 20-lift developer? Use a stainless steel kitchen whisk. Don’t worry—the mixture darkens to deep red after a few minutes. Mom’s hair turned out fine.
