A weekly-ish blog sharing my series of collages about growing up in the South during the 1950s.

During the Fifties, many religious revivals were held in large tents. I attended one and especially remember the heat and the mosquitoes and someone walking who had been crippled. The speaker asked for donations. He claimed if we didn't give our money to his ministry, "the Lord would come and take your purse away". That statement must have had a profound effect on me. For months afterward, I used all of my allowance to buy purses at Woolworth's.
