Life in the Holler (and Topside) - Home Sweet Home

Back to a 'Simple life here, with simple beauty
Click on headline for introduction with photo album

By Shamarie Claiborne

After returning from Texas I am so happy to be home. Everywhere I look there is something picture worthy. We live a simple life here, with simple beauty. I prefer our rural life 1000 times over. Cities are nice to visit with lots of conveniences, movie theaters, museums, and fabulous foods but the serenity of life here and the slow pace of my holler and our community is the only place for me. - SHAMARIE CLAIBORNE

Yellow is the brightest color in the holler right now. It stands out among the brown lifeless landscape like a beacon of hope that winter is about gone! And even this lover of snow and all things winter is ready for spring and the rebirth of all things living this year. Bring on the Pollen!!! - Shamarie Claiborne

Jerry Moss was prepping his fields
up on T.P. Cundiff, Friday evening. Planting is a bit behind this year due to Jack Frost refusing to leave and the never ending raining, but things are starting to even out and the familiar scenes of farm life are emerging. - Shamarie Claiborne
