Peevish Pen

Ruminations on reading, writing, rural living, retirement, aging—and sometimes cats. And maybe a border collie or other critters.

I'm an elderly retired teacher who writes. Among my books are Ferradiddledumday (Appalachian version of the Rumpelstiltskin story), Stuck (middle grade paranormal novel), Patches on the Same Quilt (novel set in Franklin County, VA), Them That Go (an Appalachian novel), Miracle of the Concrete Jesus & Other Stories, and several Kindle ebooks.

Union Hall, VA—March 2007

I took this shot last Saturday from the Union Hall post office parking lot on the north side of Rt. 40. The antique store still stands, as does Pete's shop, but not for long. The new road will go through where those building are now. Union Hall still looks like Ground Zero.

The big hole was where woods were. Just above it—where the barn used to be, you can see some heavy equipment. In the distance is Turkeycock Mountain.

The house, the barn, the woods—all memories now.

Isn't "progress" something else?
