I'm blogging from the Buckeye Rec Center in Beech Mountain...
Yesterday and last night were L-A-Z-Y times in Asheville, which was perfect... I needed the rest.
Cas has the most comfortable bed on the planet... it was hard to drag myself out of it! I'm going to miss her! I had so much fun, and it was a really great time... at least Asheville is only an hour from Penland.
I packed up my stuff, and headed back out on the road.
Ronda (my Honda) and I listened to Bluegrass music on NPR stations... The public radio stations here mainly play really cool bluegrass music, which is perfect to drive in the mountains to.
Cas burned me a cd (Griffin House) which is awesome... some of the songs made me cry and sing-along... I'm sure cars around me thought I was a freak.
I drove into Boone, and went back to Cheap Joe's Art Stuff... Their "sale" was still expensive... but at least I was able to buy the majority of my art supplies that I need for my next two classes. Next I drove past Grandfather Mountain... See photo below:
I'm on my way to the Beech Mtn house... my aunt and uncle from Dallas are also here. I'll spend the night with them tonight and then tomorrow I start my second class...
I really feel better than I have in a long time... I'm picking up my pieces and moving forward. My road is full of ups and downs and twists and turns... but I'm still moving forward... most of the time, destination unknown... and I'm okay with that. As long as I have the love of my family and friends, a ton of fun, and take a lot of great photos along the way.
