Life in the Holler: It couldn't be better today



2014-02-01 - The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Columbia, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne. Just ask Buford, if you think we don't know how good we've got it. He knew right where to be with this springlike February day. The front porch is as good as a hammock.

Life in the Holler: I'm out of here

I think this guy had to be saying . . . "these folks are crazy - I'm out of here". After seeing me stop in the middle of the road - jump out of my KIA in my pink leopard pj's - then go running down the road trying to get his picture . . . just saying, I think I need a life. When does band season start? - SHAMARIE

Life in the Holler: Holding on to its beauty, during freeze



2014-02-02 - The Holler, Old Clearspring Roads, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
As cold as it has been and even with most of the holler frozen over,
this little beauty has held on to some of its blooms. It reminded me that if you look you can always find life. No matter how cold, how frozen, how gray the days have been. God is always working on the next season. Yet, he is thoughtful enough to leave us little reminders of yesterday and hope for tomorrow. - Shamarie Claiborne

Life in the Holler: The frightening, bookstarter tree . . .



2014-02-02 - Topside, The Holler, Old Clearsprings Road, Ozark, KY - Photo by Shamarie Claiborne.
We have a few trees like this scattered throughout the holler. Every day I have the same thought when I see them. When I write my book the opening will be: As she coward in the hollow of the maple tree Shana held her breath as to not alert them of her location. It was the perfect place to hide and rest for just a moment. Fatigue was setting in and she found her mind drifting back to the days when her life was simple. A life empty of the blood thirsty killers currently roaming the hills and holler of her youth . . . - SHAMARIE CLAIBORNE.

Life in the Holler: Sometimes circle of life subtle, but not always



2014-02-02 .
One of the best things about living in the holler is you can always see the circle of life in one way or another. Sometimes it is very subtle and other times it plainly smacks you in the face. Today -- my cheek is still red from the blow. - Shamarie Claiborne
