I’m writing to share my, thoughts, ideas, conversations and feelings on living here in this rural community in the woods of East Texas.
Many people I’ve met and some I’ve gotten to know as friends moved here from the city because of the peaceful scenes and natural beauty. As they began to make their home here; they discover that along with having a garden that attracts butterflies comes caterpillars, with having flowers come bees, in the woods there are vines and dead trees, and with having a pond there are snakes.
They see nature as a duality of good things and bad things. They work to get rid of the bad things and believe they can still have the good things.
