Hello Poets and Writers, From Living Above the Frost Line, in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Friends and Fellow writers,
Happy New Year.
This photo was taken Jan. 2009,
by my hand, through my eyes,
off the deck of my home.
Dear Poet and Writing Friends, You may have been wondering - "Where is she?" or maybe not. You may not give a hoot. I need to know. Here at the end of 2011, I totally lost this blog and the opportunity to communicate with you. Looks like my site is back this morning. I am shouting with joy, with hope LIVING ABOVE THE FROST LINE will hold and continue as we move into 2012. It was a crisis for me. I hope to never have to go through that horror again. I do not have a clue what took my site down. I do not know how it came back this morning.
If you know me, you know I am intelligent. I can do this. I have a storehouse of information to share with poets and writers. I hope to continue but not sure you have interest in poetry at all. I do not know if you are interested in southern and Appalachian poets and writers - their new books and where you can buy them at their press. I've featured many southern and Appalachian writers throughout the past three years. I have a line up for 2012. I have suggestions and an updated list of markets calling for poems now. Are you interested?
Or is there some other reason you visit this site? The links to yet other writing sites? The latest news of writing events in the mountains of western NC and North Georgia?
Sorry to put you on the spot. Are you interested? Comments please. What are your interests?
