After a weekend in the mountains


Gorgeous time up in the NC mountains visiting the 
June wedding venues, celebrating the groom's 23rd birthday, and his new job! I am back to work towards the end of the 
school year:


                                   Banner Elk Presbyterian Church

               Taylor House Inn where the reception will be on the grounds. We stayed here. .                     Owned by a lovely European couple. Guess what was on the walls?
                                  Original art by her grandmother and daughter.

                                                                The Real Work

It may be that when we no longer know what to do
we have come to our real work,

and that when we no longer know which way to go
we have come to our real journey.

The mind that is not baffled is not employed.
The impeded stream is the one that sings.
~ Wendell Berry ~
(Collected Poems)

                          We could hear the mountain stream which is 
                                     alongside the road. It was singing Saturday 
                                                       morning.
