Was recently in NYC for the first time. Loved it. Thing was, I kept running into people who had a connection with WV. Met the assistant to Denise Giardina's editor when Denise first published Storming Heaven. She loved Denise. I said, who doesn't? Met a man with a lit mag who was from Wayne, WV. He's now in, I don't know, Michigan? And so on. It seemed everywhere I turned (I was at a huge writer's conference), I ran into someone who eagerly shared their connection to my roots--here in West By God Virginia, where our memories get layered because our family's roots run deep and long into the past. We may leave our beloved area, but we ken for it yet.
