Amelia Roché Roland's grandmother started her out young. Their hangouts included ice cream and watercolors while Papa Nathan played the piano, his tunes swelling throughout their big, wooden house. When Amelia got older, it suddenly dawned on her that she was living in a swampland full of bright and true color. The people were polite and the landscape was surreal and sticky. As Amelia's husband likes to say, "Living in the South is like living inside a giant's mouth." Ain't that the truth.
Forgotten memories, discarded photographs, a faraway place. Those rich, real colors of living and breathing in the American South. This is what gets Amelia out of bed in the morning—a hard feat too, as she is notorious for sleeping in.
