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

A lyrical Eve transplanted to mountain country from midwestern "flatlands,"
Britt Kaufmann has put down her roots amidst "kindred spirits of
unlike minds" and found her voice among "those who didn't
want to be found." These compelling poems with their abundant
natural imagery remind us of the gracious capacity of language to help us
claim our home in this world.

~ Ann Hostetler, author of Empty Room with Light: Poems
and editor of A Cappella: Mennonite
Voices in Poetry

Britt Kaufmann's Belonging brings the real
world of a woman's experience close enough to touch, whether that reality be a
child, a quilt, a garden, or what belongs to those underground streams that
feed a woman's inner life. Her words call up the things of everyday life and
make them last. This poet belongs unapologetically to that moment when joy
pushes its way to the surface, like a crocus through snow, never hesitating to
praise it and its many gifts, opening her arms wide to welcome its arrival.

~ Kathryn Stripling Byer

Belonging—that word is the best possible title for Britt Kaufmann’s earnest, engaging,
affectionate, and wonderfully enjoyable collection of poems. Be,
says the land and the nature that enfolds it.
Longing is what we feel when
we gaze upon the land and try to search its meaning. This tight-knit sheaf is as inviting as an
apple pie set to cool on a window sill.

~ Fred Chappell
