A Little Excitement To Share

This past Saturday, my sister, Anne, and I left home to drive up to Mountain City, Ga.  Home of Foxfire.  The very place where LMHC filmed our video, Appalachia Goodbye.  I have known about Foxfire for quite sometime…indeed, most Georgians are aware of the series of books that came from the English program at Rabun Gap Nacoochee School(and later Rabun County High School).  It’s a...

Great Things Happen When You Least Expect It!

On the grand scale of things….it’s probably not that great to anyone but me, but I am so excited that my little sister, Anne, will be moving back to the South(where she really does belong).  Life has lots of journeys and she has had quite a few exciting and exotic ones….but this move will be, I hope, the best.  So fingers crossed and high hopes and all that jazz for a great...

A little contest for ya!

I’ve just returned from a wonderful weekend with my old college friends, (Berry College) and spent lots of time talking, playing guitar and singing (with the girl who started me on my college music journey, Mary Tankersley) and biking along some wonderful backwoods dirt roads in the country. These women spent some of the most important moments of my life with me….I’m so blessed...

It’s About Time…

I can’t believe it has been so long since I last put something on here.  Apologies to you all. We had a great time at Smiley’s Acoustic Cafe, Greenville, SC.  Truly a special place.  Can you believe there are no tv’s around the bar? No tv’s anywhere in the whole place.  This is a venue that means it when they say they create an atmosphere for live music and music lovers...
