Whisper, relaxing and peace

- The whisper of the river. Back to sit beside the Hiawassee River with my sister after way too much time away.

- The Festival on the Square making for a lovely, relaxing Saturday afternoon. Using stories and songs, Nashville songwriter Tim Bays entertains.

- The back porch, aka almost paradise. And having a discussion about the ability to summon up the river sound in our heads when we need a moment of peace.

Sounds like you had a fabulous weekend, Lynn.

Talon -

It is a good place to forget about your troubles.
