A Much-Needed Break

Beginning tomorrow, I’ll be travelling with family to one of my favorite cities: Charleston, SC. And there may be some of you surprised that this city, of all possibilities, would be my favorite–after all, there are no mountains there! And no, Mount Pleasant does not count…

But that is where I grew up, for the most part. Not only then, but when at college, I worked near there and visited the area often. There is much that draws me here. Many formative memories are from there or nearby. And while much has certainly changed, there is sure to be something that brings back memories happy and sad. What’ll it be? Who knows?

Regardless, it is sure to inspire. Maybe you’ll see some of the results of inspiration sooner, rather than later.

  1. That sounds like a marvelous trip you have planned. I hope you have a splendid time and think of some things to write, and perhaps take some photos for your blog. That is an incredibly beautiful part of the country, and Charleston seems to have a mythic quality about it. I have wanted to travel through that part of the South for a long time.

    PS- In my opinion, the educated/upper-class Charleston accent is the most beautiful form of English on either side of the Atlantic. If you are more the working-class ‘yote, though, that variety is exquisite as well!

  2. Barks at you! Wish you the best on your adventure yote. I know Texas will be eagerly awaiting your return!
