About Teresa Pearson Lee

Retired after 33 years of teaching English and French (one year in private school in Memphis, TN and the rest in public school in Doniphan, MO. Enjoying new adventures - all those things I put off for lack of time, energy, now I can try them! Pottery, writing, traveling, camping, kayaking, dancing, listening to some of the best live music ever, and making lively new friendships. All christened with an appreciation for great red wine! Created and operated KC's on the Current, then sold it and managed it for new owners. You might still find me at the reservation desk when spring rolls around. Born and raised in St. Louis, MO near The Hill. Though a transplant to Southeast Missouri, still a city gal at the core with a deep love of the natural resources in these Ozark foothills. Currently I am a content coordinator for Poplar Bluff Living Magazine and a columnist/stringer for the local weekly The Prospect News. My rescue Siamese helps with most of the proofreading; he has a great ear. I relish the solitude easily had in the Mark Twain Forest but thoroughly enjoy lively outings for music, wine, conversation close to home or in my beloved hometown. Technology is my greatest challenge but so worth the shared connections. There may be a need for solitude but there is little loneliness.

Tomatoes speak summer. We enjoy the ‘love apple’ in a variety of ways… fresh off the vine with juice dripping off elbows, quartered on a plate with salt and pepper handy, sliced on a sandwich chowed down quickly before the bread gets … Continue reading

First Sight of Nature’s Gem

At about the age I was moved to St. Louis to start school, Albert Morrow was moved to Doniphan. In reverse expectations, Big Spring would remain a consistent destination for my family’s excursions to the area. Though living only an … Continue reading

Current Devotion

I did not grow up on a Current bank,  ‘Twas due to a simple switch of fate. For that I have dear Dad to thank. An ultimatum – city or country – from Mom, his mate. At age of five … Continue reading
