This is my story about living above the waterfall in Brevard/Rosman, Transylvania County, North Carolina where I met artisans, writers, photographers, artists, poets, young and young at heart, who told me stories of the place they called home.
Others told me it was the place that they left when young, and returned later to raise children and grandchildren.
Some, like me, came here from work places and large communities and stayed into retirement and second careers.
It's a place with rivers, some shallow--others deep--that flow through valleys and ravines with a history of their own.
It's a place with green meadows, walking paths and trails by historic mills, rivers and towns that were born of industry and immigration, faded and reborn again, as descendants and former residents return to reclaim past history and splendor.
It's a place where some will say "Walton War" was fought by citizen soldiers on disputed territory near the French Broad River.
It's a frontier place that saw the likes of Davie Crockett, Daniel Boone and other frontiersmen who made the westward advance of America possible.
It's a place that would see the first and second world wars as soldiers loaded buses and trains, leaving mothers, sons, husbands and wives behind to wait for a worried and fearsome return.
It's a place that experienced the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's that brought changes, as factories changed and work changed.
It's a place that lets those who live here see the planet's news in 'right now' time.
It's a place where a new generation ushered in Y-2K.
It's a place that witnessed the beginning of the 21st century with its concerns, hopes and new life styles and social interactions; built on faith, goals, education and new technologies. And, it's the place where I live now.
