As I am growing older, I have been losing touch with a lot of my friends, letting go family contacts and that has basically caused one huge problem in my adult life.

I cannot clearly remember what it was that made me want to visit some of the Southern states that I did. Did I want to visit the Bourbon trail, see horses that raced in the Kentucky Derby, or was it reading about Asheville and the arts there?

Dependent In An Independent Country

Moving from the tropics the biggest shock to my mind and body was getting used to seasons. What? No green trees year round!
