I’ve been enjoying my time away from the computer. Thanks to Nevada Jack for watching over the party and for all who wished Murf a happy birthday. I won’t really be back in the saddle, so to speak, till next Wednesday. After then, I’ll try to get around and catch up on what’s happening in your life. Till then, know that I’m enjoying a beautiful place without cell phone coverage. It can’t get much pretty than that! Here are a few shots which remind me of how water can have a calming and healing affect upon us. As for my location, I’m not far from “Cold Mountain,” which you may remember is also the setting for a novel and a movie, in a truly beautiful part of North Carolina.
