In 1998 I saw a woman with a cloud of white hair sitting elegantly on the porch railing of the grandest antebellum home I had ever seen. She was sipping from a mug, hot tea, I supposed, looking out yonder to an open view where black smoke was rising. It was fire she saw. But she wasn’t at all troubled. This was my dream. This was Miss Margret. This was the vision that started it all.
