As we enter a new year, we usually look back on the last one. The last few months of 2015 were so busy for me I was not able to post. I hope to be a little more productive in 2016.
Sharing a few photos from the beautiful, historic and rustic county of Montgomery. Stanly's mother county.
In the ancient Uwharries, time can seem to stand still. The wind whispers of occupants past and a simpler way of life. Wildlife abounds and the many cold, babbling creeks run on and on in the never-ending rush to the ocean.
Old tombstones crumble among the hills. The ancient dna beneath interspersed throughout descendants near and far. The stories the hills could tell carried on the wind and whispered from tree to tree.
The birds and beast are sometimes the only visitors to the tranquil beds of rest and all but gone homesites hidden among the woodlands.
Old roads leave a mininal trace among the trees and beside the streams that once led settlers into these hills.
Signs of the past remain in odd corners, a crumbling reminder of what once was and what will one day become of the present structures.
From looking back to looking forward, from our family to yours, Have a Great and Productive 2016!
