Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

First place winner of the recent Joyce Kilmer poetry contest celebrating the anniversary of the JK National Forest is Mary Ricketson of Murphy.   Her "Lost in the Roar of Big Santeetlah" is a memorable and moving poem, one that I will be featuring on my new blog, Mountain Woman:  All three top winners are from our region.  Good for us!   You can find Mary on facebook.

Hello, Kathryn SB - just stopping by here, as well.

If you ever need anything, let me know - I get a pretty good following on my Tender Graces blog and would be glad to put up any links to anything you need.

Kay, let me do my part in making even more people aware of your website--because it its certainly one of the most valuable resources around. I'm thinking that soon I can begin to create a poetry feature of a sort on "The Read," and feature links to your efforts. You can put a blog on this site that includes cut-and-paste excerpts from yours--as teasers--and then lead people to your laureate blog. There's also a group on this site--Sound-and-Sense Seekers--that involves some dynamic discussion among invitees. Thanks for all/Rob
