Slow Road Home

Back when I first started dreaming my “Mountain Dreams” I stumbled across Fred First’s blog Fragments From Floyd at about the time he began talking about publishing his first book. I ordered a pre-publication copy and waited for it to arrive…After reading it I wrote the following on this blog and pushed out to Amazon when the book made it there…

Today for lunch I joined a friend Ive never met. We walked along a creek with no name under hemlocks in a valley Ive never seen. We passed a barn Ive only envisioned in painted light upon my screen. The sun I couldn’t see glistened on grasses in the field to dry the dew I did not feel. I wasn’t there, and yet I was, visiting with Fred on Goose Creek in the mountains of Floyd County.

I’ll go there again tomorrow for lunch as I revisit a “Slow Road Home”. Wont you come along? Well visit Anns Falls, well sit a spell under the white pines, well wave at the neighbors from the front porch. Well while away the time as we discuss the important issues of the day, the bumblebees at play, and the hawks upon the wing. We can discuss anything at all as we visit there on the creek with no name along that “Slow Road Home”.
