It was the early 70’s, after 9 pm, I was a young long-haired hippy, thumbing through NC.
There was a group of young black men, standing around in a closed store’s parking lot. I was sure they would accept me after all, I was cool.
I found I was in the middle of a circle, being pushed back and forth. (Scary time.) When an older man’s, big black hand grabbed my wrist. ‘What was I doing?’ He asked.
Never letting go of my arm, he led me along some RR tracks, to a little shack with a station wagon out front. He fixed me a bed, told me to ‘leave before daylight, and leave nothing behind.’
I looked out, and he was on his rocker on the front porch with his dog and shotgun. I slept like a baby.’
Thanks for visiting,
Know You Are Loved
We all have the relationship we want with God. My desire is a more intimate one.
