Sometimes I get the crazy feeling that Appalachia is speaking directly to me.
Sometimes it’s subtle, and sometimes it seems (at least to me) pretty obvious.
Like the wrong turn I took while driving out in the countryside just days before the end of the year that brought me unexpectedly face to face with a very unexpected street sign.
Why on earth would someone name a road ‘good intentions,’ I wondered (when I wasn’t wondering where the heck I was.)
But then I got to thinking about the past year and decisions made – based perhaps more on good intentions than good sense.
On the first day of a brand new year, maybe it’s time to simply appreciate that positive thoughts had been at the root of them all, let it go, and move on.
Thank you, Appalachia – I can’t wait to see what surprises you have in store for me the next time I lose my way.
