Just a little note to say I’m not being snobbish. Just haven’t been home to be online and visit or comment this past several days. Took a trip to a couple of my favorite places, pictured below. Nashville is one of my old hometowns, and the Smoky Mountains are where I wish I could make my home. The Internet was so unreliable, I gave up on getting online while away. Had a tooth break on the trip, and that resulted in some emergency dental work today, so I’m just not feeling up to sitting at my computer any length of time yet. Tomorrow will definitely be better. I’ll share about my incongruously enjoyable trip — a perfect combination of inspiring conversations and exasperating (but sometimes funny) experiences, all stirred up together.
