The Welcomer

This was anonymously written on the side walk along South McDonough Street in front of the Daulton House to be. I'm not sure you would find this sort of reception anywhere but in the South — and given the seemingly adversarial roles of historic commissions and municipal building departments (whether justified or not), not to mention obstinant neighbors, it was heartening for me and the Daultons to discover this whimsical gesture. Kindness is incredibly inexpensive for what it accomplishes. It's so important to us that we contribute to this community and in addition to building a home, build relations.
