i got a letter

Sorry she’s a little fuzzy. I’m having one of those horrible “shaky hands” days.

Mailman knocked on the door and said, “Very large package for you this morning!” And indeed – the box doesn’t fit in our trashcan!

What a surprise! Preston said I looked like I was ready to cry, and he’s right.

I can’t wait to get this framed and up on the wall!

Here is a picture of the original statue / headstone at the Lexington Cemetery.

Appalachian gothic fiction writer - my works reflect a love of literature flavored by the darkness and magic residing in these ancient mountains. In my spare time, I'm a Simmer, I tumbl, I journal, but I always have a very strange sense of humor. I have lived away from the mountains and lived deep in the mountains. I currently live in Central Kentucky with my lifepartner and his cat. The mountains, their culture, their superstitions, their particular magics, will always be in my blood.
