This story takes place somewhere deep in the Appalachian Mountains. The exact timing of the story is not important as this is about finding oneself, myself, in the journey of life. The only beings who are present in the story is myself, my dog, God and the memories of the people who have shaped my thoughts and beliefs in my life.
The people who have touched my life do not know the impact, subtle or otherwise, that they have placed on my soul. They are not present physically but very present spiritually. They help create the dialogue in my mind about what is and what should be. Helping me find my 'true self' and weeding out the unimportant.
