My name is Cora Lee Mease. I was born and raised in the Little Cataloochee Valley. But just cause I was born in the mountains didn't mean that's where I was bound to stay.…

Appalachian Writers

I first met Charles Fletcher over a year ago-I can't remember how we met for sure if it was through the Blind Pig or maybe through The Read on WNC. But it didn't take us long to figure out we had much in common. We both shared a great love for Western NC and East TN-the mountains-the culture-the traditions-and most of all the people. As often happens when you make new friends-we…

Tipper,

Hey - thank you so much for your kind comment! I do love photography and plan to post a lot more of my stock photos. I glanced at your blog and plan to give it a longer look when I can. I too love our mountain culture - and one of the things is bluegrass music. I also write about the area - I'm primarily a writer, not a photog, with journalism degrees from a couple of colleges. If you get a chance, read "The First of December" in U Chicago's lit mag. It's a hitch-hiking story from the 60s, set in Pisgah and on I-40. Also, my novel, THE MONEY TREE, is a chase set on Green River. You can read the first four chapters for free from my Kindle page at Amazon. You don't need a Kindle e-reader - just download the app for your omputer right from the page. I'd love to hear what you think about it.

Thanks again,

Sam

*** I'm pleased you liked the Nantahala: Land of the Noonday Sun video made in, I think, 1999 . . . Lance Holland and I didn't know what we were doing but we went at it like demented savages . . . fortunately our videographer, Ron Rhuel, now deceased, did know what he was doing . . . we're not ashamed of it

Hi Tipper. I was just enjoying your page here and can't figure out the picture of slices of squash on the kitchen counter with a string going across them. What is that? Do you string them up to dry them or something?

Tipper, I'm afraid I have trouble finding my way around The Read. I don't have the time to spend trying to learn all I should know to use it properly. One day I'll spend a few hours and see if I can figure it out.
Love all your posts. They are delightful.
