“Janalyn Renee Brooks lived just where the north Kirbyville highway widened from one lane to two, framed in tall pine trees tangled with yellow jasmine, and graced by a pond that had its source from an underground spring that ran beneath the pasture between her house and the old Harrison place; it was famous for sustaining the brambles of dewberry bushes that formed an intricate maze that extended into the woods, with shady hiding places for rabbits, children, and sometimes snakes, depending on the time of year; but by the time the bushes reached Brooks’ Repose, they were an orderly, well-trimmed and maintained source of jams and jellies, for not even a dewberry bush could grow on Mrs. Brooks’ three acres without proper respect and reverence; they probably knew that Mrs. Janalyn was sitting at her window, keenly observing the activities that occurred, from ponds and dewberry bushes and children irregardless, and that if she decided anything was out of order, she would not settle for it until she had sorted out the reasons and rhymes thereof.” Jody Bailey Day

“Reality can be a different experience for everyone.” Rachel Nix
