Intro to Watsonopolis

Watsonopolis is a place where the Watson family posts their writing, reflections, images and videos.

Most of the stuff we post are our own thoughts, wonderings, and stories that emerge from our lives, our living, the world around us and the world within us.

You'll find us reflecting on our travels, our faith, justice, and what it means for us to live well in 21st century America.

Walking in Memphis

The Watsons 3 have arrived!  We have been in Memphis just over 2 weeks now (sorry for the delay in blogging).  Its still settling in that we're in Memphis, in Tennessee and in the South. We pulled into Memphis along with our traveling partners James & Felicia Graham (God bless them) and it was like the scene from The 10 Commandments.  I was looking for Heston and his staff...the music...the parted waters...seriously.  I had that feeling.  Not the leaving Egypt part...just the entering. 

We made our way out of Texas after an amazing visit with the family and showing the Grahams around Dallas and East Texas.  Rolled into Rocky Branch, Louisiana for a visit with the Chapman family.  Laughed our tails off, fished in their pond and left refreshed.  Pointed ourselves northward out of Jackson, MS and got into Memphis around 8pm on a Wednesday. 

 The last couple of weeks have been great.  Living Hope has really loved and recieved us well; stopped by to visit, brought us meals, invited us into their homes.  Good stuff.  Obviously we're still learning our way around Memphis, but so far we're really enjoying our new city. 

 Thanks for praying us thorugh the travel.  We had some fun stories which I'll post later this week.

 Here is a picture of James Graham and Nathan at the historic Arcade Restaurant in downtown Memphis.
