Five simple little words, and thus a new chapter begins. My name is Shannon Daley, and I've been invited to share with RedCert readers my view of the world through my unique, slightly quirky but distinctly American eye (both of them actually, but now is not the time for nitpicking).
It's a view that's been shaped by a lot of odd twists and turns, starting with the geographical. I was raised in the American south and now reside in Arizona -- Southwest By South, if you will. I haven't lived in the South in over 20 years, but a southern American upbringing is like the southern American accent: no matter how hard you try to shake it off, it clings to you with a grip that even the Jaws of Life can't pry loose.
