Mabry Mill

This is said to be the most photographed spot in America. I can believe it. This is my version. This photo, also, was taken in June 2004. Unfortunately, the weather decided to let loose about the time we arrived. As a matter of fact if you look at the photo you can see the beginnings of the rainfall hitting the pond surface. So all we saw was the sites from the parking lot and the mill itself. Maybe next trip we can actually see the rest of the displays... Posted by Picasa

This photo came from my 2004 Vacation Shots. We did the trip in Early June. On this drive we were returning from Mabry Mill. It was a cool, rainy day for a drive on the Blue Ridge.

“You are the storyteller of your own life..."

I was going through some old files today, cleaning out the clutter that accumulates when you aren’t being particularly observant, and I came across a bunch of slides I printed from a Tom Peters presentation. The one that spoke to me immediately was a quote Tom had attributed to Isabel Allende. “You are the storyteller of your own life, and you can create your own legend or not.” That one sentence, in its simplicity, pretty much lays out a whole life philosophy. The only addition I would make is it takes an audience for the legend to become mythical. From my observation it is only in the eyes of your friends and loved ones that the story you live can become the legend that become myth through the retelling.

Anyway for the time being her quote will have a place of prominence on this site…and as a unsolicited plug, I finished her new book “Zorro” a couple of months ago and happily endorse it as a very good read.

A walk into spring...

This Photo on fletch's blog really makes me wish I was close enough to take a stroll...When I first saw it this week it reminded me of some of the roads I’ve visited. Springtime and a country road…

No Direction Home is another blog I discovered early last winter. I came through a link on Marie Freeman's Blue Ridge Blog. Fletch's photo's keep me coming back almost daily to see what's new...Thank to both .
