I See Georgia: Macon-Take 2

A little over a year into our tour of Georgia, we found ourselves at a bit of a crossroads. We’d been to so many places and seen so much. From North (Brasstown Bald, Clayton) to West (Rome, Carrolton) to South (Savannah and Tybee Island) to East (Augusta), we’d gone in every direction possible. After all…

I See Georgia: Atlanta – Conclusion

After the draining heat and humidity of Oakland Cemetery, we needed a place to cool off. Fortunately, I had something in mind: the climate-controlled gondolas of an attraction I’d wanted to visit since the first time I encountered it rising high above the city: Skyview Atlanta. We headed downtown, passing the Georgia State University campus…

I See Georgia: Atlanta

There are certain things most people know about Atlanta: -It is the capital city of our great state. -The airport, Hartsfield-Jackson International, is known as one of, it not the, busiest airports in the world. -The city was mostly burned to the ground during the Civil War. -It is the hometown of Dr. Martin Luther…

I See Georgia: Brasstown Bald

Enotah: That’s the word the Cherokee used to describe it. It means “New Green Place,” and standing there, gazing from the summit as North Georgia stretched out before me, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate name. Forested mountains led away into the mist, before disappearing at the horizon. Far below, lakes, rivers and small…

I See Georgia: Eatonton

If you grew up in the South, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ll be familiar with Br’er Rabbit. You might also know Br’er Bear and Br’er Fox, and probably know what I mean when I mention The Briar Patch, and why Mr. Possum has no Hair on his Tail. I’m talking, of course, about…

I See Georgia: Amicalola Falls

So far on our travels around Georgia, we’ve seen a lot. We’ve been to big cities and small towns, lakes and river, the coast and the mountains. We’ve seen roadside attractions, eaten at hidden gem restaurants, and sampled local coffee and beer all over the state. But up until now, we’ve largely neglected an important…

I See Georgia: Arabia Mountain

 With so many places worth visiting in our great state, it only makes sense that some of them would be under the radar; hidden in out of the way corners on less traveled back roads. Even though you call a place home, you can go for years without being aware of attractions and natural wonders….

Tumbling

Falling Cascading Rolling over the edge Tumbling waters on the way to everywhere

Petals

From the center extending up and down Left and right Right and wrong Yes and no In the sun opening to the world Reaching out to life Closing as night falls Saying goodbye until tomorrow when everything and nothing will change  

Stand

On a gray morning when the only sound is silence and time draws out on an endless plain I would stand where the cold wind blows to save you from an ounce of pain When the rain falls finding it’s way into every crevice and the sun hides day after day I would let the…

Orange

A golden afternoon Shadows black against concrete Trees sway in a gentle breeze I can see them standing together back lit by the setting sun Talking Gesturing I can see them gazing out at the surf Together Laughing Living I can see them but they can’t see me

I Saw a Ghost

I saw a ghost You probably don’t believe me I get it After all, Who believes in that sort of thing? But I did Early in the morning, this was while no one else was awake I couldn’t sleep so I was sitting on the couch just staring at the wall She walked by headed…
