Appalachian Thursday–Take Me Home, Country Roads

I’m in West Virginia visiting family today. Thanks to spring break we’re all in the same place at the same time for once. A gift too precious to set aside for blogging. I’ll check in at the weekend!

Below are some images from home that inspired settings in Appalachian Serenade and Miracle in a Dry Season. Always happy to return to such special places.

  1. Welcome Home. Sometimes you may leave West Virginia, but WV never leaves you… Mountain Momma is always with you, carried inside you like the black dust from the mines imbedded in the lungs of those who toil inside her dark domes. She becomes a part of you, your life, your loves and the breath you take. Welcome Home.
