As a kid, I spend my summers in Maine and Canada canoe-tripping through some of the most pristine lands in North America, but the forests that lined those rivers and lakes appeared as nothing but a green wall to me.

When I first entered the home of Dr. Charles Quarles in Forest City, NC it was rather unassuming. From the outside it was just another ordinary ranch style home on a long suburban street. The first floor was carefully decorated with antique furniture, landscape paintings are hung on the wall and I could hear I Love Lucy playing on the TV in the kitchen. Then Mr. Quarles invited me downstairs and things quickly become out of the ordinary.Read More

Yesterday I drove the 1150 miles from Austin, TX to Asheville, NC. Today I am sitting on my friend Ben's porch in Asheville, journaling and working on my laptop as a midday rainstorm coming rolling through the Blue Ridge Mountains. I'll be here for the next week, and already I don't want to leave.
