I live in a small rural enclave that hosts artists, musicians, dancers and writers. A good portion of this population of creative types were reared elsewhere, in most cases larger cities or its surrounding suburbs.
Yesterday I was visited by Elizabeth a fabulous artist who is part of a multi-generational family of quilters. She told me of a close neighbor, John who just published a book (Riding on the Edge: A Motorcycle Outlaw's Tale), and though I did not know he was in the process of writing a book I was in no way surprised.
Whether inspired by our surroundings or the escape from what had been our "hood" the mountains of central Pennsylvania are bursting with creativity.
