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

The comment you posted in 2009 about southern women passive aggressive and abusing themselves was difficult for me to understand then. Less so after reading Caitlin Flannagan's To Hell With All That- Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewife.

I believe this lady does an excellent job of explaining the inner conflicts and outward pressures well. In many towns in the south, outward expression is subdued. We have not been able to have controversial matters out in the open because "it isn't lady like."

Not everyone is subject to this of course.  It has been difficult to find solutions because of the suppression. Now, however, more women are publishing. Some focus on demure oriental practices exclusively, though, and other pleasures are lost.

Do you think I am missing something with this line of thought?

I am a believer in health, happiness, hope, help, and humor, all interactive. Your analysis is astute. How can these southern lady behaviors be changed to the good, incorporating and enabling them to become Sweet Potato Queens as realists and Laurie Notaros as humorists. Have you read any of hers?--I Love Everybody (and other atrocious lies) is one.

Sorry to be late getting back to you. Didn't visit The Read in weeks.

I would like to visit Weaverville to gain further information. I am 66 years old and have varied interests. I have degrees in counseling and English, work experience with both. Are there any festivals or group things I could come to there? I am in essential agreement with Christianity and would like to hear your feelings with it.
