"All my memories gather round her Miner's lady, stranger to blue water Dark and dusty, painted on the blue sky Misty taste of moonshine, teardrop in my eye" ~Take Me Home, Country Roads So.... I've disappeared into the wilderness and abliss....to West Virginia that is. It's been weeks since I've said hello but I have been too busy basking in the beauty and purity of the Appalachians and, of course, the art of Theater West Virginia! But I'm back to say hello. For those of you who don't know, I have set off to West Virginia on my first Summer Stock Theater Dancer/Actor Contract! I have been in West Virginia for only two weeks and we have just opened up the season with Annie the Musical and have just begun our next production of West Virginia's historical play, Hatfields and McCoys! I do say that I have been homesick for Cleveland and my people. To say the least....It's been quite a culture shock. But I am using this as a testing ground for my big move to LA that's coming towards the end of the year.....As similar to LA this place could be. Lol. I am thankful for the special few friends I have found and made here in West Virginia as well as the work I've been making on the stage and for myself. Again and again, thank you Nick Yurick for this adventure. I will forever carry these memories with me. And to the great friends I have made here, you know who you are, thank you for making this a grand adventure. Cheers! #westvirginia #theaterwestvirginia #countryroads #appalachian #theater #art #dance #actorslife #performerslife #musictheater #summerstocktheater #dreambig #dontstopmygrind #pocrepresentation #changethestage #latinoactors #polynesian #imback #dontstopbelievin #nature #onewithnature #mothernature #makeroomfordance #makeroomforart

Tag 2 der Challenge #thegermanauswanderer 🇩🇪 ♡ Was liebe ich am Süden der USA? So vieles. Die Menschen sind hier sehr herzlich und gastfreundlich. Die Southern hospitality ist schon was tolles. Alles ist hier relaxter (zumindest im Vergleich zu dem Leben was ich in NY erlebt habe). Der Nationalstolz wird hier ausgelebt, was ich schön finde. Überall sind Flaggen und die Polizei/ das Militär wird sehr respektiert. Vor kurzem hatten wir zm B. leider erst den Fall, dass ein lokaler Polizist ums Leben gekommen ist. Daraufhin haben sehr viele Menschen ein blaues Licht außen am Haus für ihn angebracht, was über mehrere Wochen geleuchtet hat. ⭐ Eine schöne Geste wie ich finde, die irgendwie einen gewissen "Zusammenhalt" widerspiegelt. ♡ So nah an den Appalachen zu leben ist ein weiteres Plus. Die Aussichten sind spektakulär und man kann am Wochenende dort einfach mal abschalten 🏞 (besonders weil man meistens auch eh keinen Empfang mehr hat 😂). ♡ Das wars erstmal von mir. Freue mich auf Tag 3 der Challenge. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • #thegermanauswanderer_dienstag #expat #expatlife #livingabroad #goodbyedeutschland #americandream #appalachia #appalachian #mountains #hikingwomen #hiking #mountainviews #views #northcarolina #happy

💚🌿💚 We have our horseshoes and our corn hung. Leave an extra plate out on holidays. Always thankful for what we have, no matter how little. Having a little is just enough. Knowing that results only come from working your fingers to the bone, sweating until you can't anymore, and collapsing after it's all said and done. . Family roots run deep, and many get lost trying to connect with their ancient ancestors from faraway lands. Many forget to honor the ancestors more close to home. Generations ago my ancestors came here in search of a new life. They touched down and laid in their roots. Connecting with the very land my predecessors did is a refreshing and empowering experience. Always remember and honor those who came before you. Without them, without all the things they had survived, you would not be here. . We are responsible for the karma of our ancestors. Every family has good and bad souls along the branches of it's tree. It is always up to the newer generations to heal the old wounds of prejudice, abuse, and wrongdoings. We can start by being genuinely good. Connecting with those in our family who helped get us here. Being proactive in the community, doing good by your fellow people, and leaving behind a world fit for those who will eventually take our place when we depart. . We are the people of the mountains. Made of dirt. Muddy water runs through our veins. Calloused feet, rough hands, sweaty brows. Medicine women, wise folk, seekers and healers. We've always been, and always will be. We all return to the earth from whence our life prospered. We suffer, we love, we live the best we can. And at the end of a long, hard day that's enough for us. It's not a craft, it's not a religion, it's a way of life. . . . #personal #appalachia #appalachian #appalachianmountains #folkmagic #appalachianfolklore #naturewitch #naturalremedies #greenwitch #greenaesthetic #witchesofinstagram #naturemagic #mountains #woodlandvibes

Du vert à perte de vue !! Cette petite escapade dans les Great Smoky Mountains a été bien agréable, de l'air frais, du soleil, la forêt. On a pas vu d'ours mais juste le fait de se dire qu'on pouvait en croiser à suffit à nous faire sentir de vrais aventurier ! ⠀ ⠀ Green everywhere ! This short getaway in the Great Smoky Mountains was a real pleasure, fresh air, sun and the forest. We haven't seen any bears but only knowing that we can meet one was enough to make us feel so adventurous ! ⠀ ⠀ #usatravel #discovercarolinas #francaisauxusa #discovernorthcarolina #carolinacollectives #discovernc #frenchinusa #discoverusa #keepitwild #wildernessculture #roamtheplanet #wanderoutdoors #greatsmokynps #nps #greatsmokymoutains #appalachian #mountainscapes #hikingadventures #backcountry #northcarolina_lovers

The answer is almost always yoga. ...Want to feel better? Yoga. Sleep better? Yoga. Digest better? Yoga. Etc; Today was a deep stretch, use tools and props, kind of day for me. My body builds up stress and tension, and then needs a way to release it. Yoga is my answer. .. ... ... ... ... #poshmark #poshmarkseller #poshmarkcloset #poshmarkreseller #poshboss #yogiwannabe #yogainnature #poshmarkambassador #poshmarkaddict #poshmarkapp #yogatools #appalachian #ncmountains #posher #goodformysoul #fitmama #fitmamalife #poshseller #poshcloset #yogalife #sahm #ootd #fashionista #springstyle #mountainlife #yogagram #mindandbody #whyidoyoga #fromwhereiposh

Currently caring for a wild rabbit. A wildlife rescuer reached out to me and asked if I could care for the little kit, and of course I said yes! Meet Hippo! It’s nursing and continuing to grow so I have a good feeling the little bunny will pull through. #oldmcdonaldsfarm #easterncottontail #easterncottontailrabbit #wildrabbits #rabbitoftheweek #rabbitsofinsta #rabbitsofinstagram #naturelover #wildlife #kentucky #ky #appalachian #bluegrass #bunny #rabbit #bunnyofinsta #bunniesofinsta

Aside from the fact that this resembles a Honda Odyssy ad, this is not an ad (but feel free to throw a few my way Honda 😉). I was happy with the result it gave the shot. I was not anticipating it to enter the frame when I took it since I was really just taking a quick snap of the clouds rolling over, not paying much mind to it but I feel like it helps add dimension to the landscape by giving a sense of where the road is in that mystical mountain view. Happy Tuesday everyone

One stick, one knife ➡️ fire lit with a spark. 🔥 lately I’ve been relaxing by practicing this bushcraft challenge. It forces you to practice splitting wood by baton, shaving feather sticks, lighting a fire with a ferro-rod (modern flint/steel) and building a self sustaining fire. It’s particularly helpful in wet conditions because the interior wood will be bone dry. I might join the fire challenge at the next @georgiabushcraft gathering, although I don’t think I’ll beat @sarcraft_survival or @joe_flowers_zilla lol

🔎 ARTIST SPOTLIGHT 🔦 “With stunning insight and honesty, Justin Wells speaks upon the disillusion of dreams, the realization of new ones, the reality of the pitfalls of the rock and roll fantasy, and does so with cutting clarity and poetic facility.” – Saving Country Music ________________________ A roots-rock songwriter with a rough-and-tumble rasp of a voice, Justin Wells’ music shines a light on the highs and lows of a life spent on the road. For years, the Kentuckian shared that road with his bandmates in Fifth on the Floor. The guys were southern rock underdogs, and they climbed their way toward success on their own terms, earning a cult following and a Billboard chart placement for their album Ashes & Angels along the way. Their songs drifted back and forth across the line between brash and broken, carried by loud guitars and louder sentiment. However, the band abruptly parted ways in early 2015. ________________________ The dismantling of the band fueled the writing on Wells’ first solo record, the critically-acclaimed Dawn in the Distance. On it, his voice is still mountain-sized, while looking beyond the Southern stomp of his former band. Produced by Duane Lundy (Ringo Starr, Sturgill Simpson’s Sunday Valley, Joe Pug), the album is Wells’ most affecting to date. Songs like “The Dogs” and “The Highway Less Taken” catch the singer staring in the mirror, while “Going Down Grinnin” and “Still No Rain” move like a drifter, unwilling to quit. ________________________ 🐀 Don’t miss Justin Wells, LIVE! on stage at the River Rat Beer & Music Festival, October 5th, Downtown Gallipolis.

This view, I was standing on the Wildcats while oddly enough wearing La Sportiva Wildcats looking at Mount Washington. You can see the one of a kind weather pattern the presidential mountain range has. This picture doesn’t do this place justice, you’re just going to have to go yourself! #hiking #adventure #mountain #mountwashingtonvalley #wildcatmountain #gorham #gorhamnewhampshire #hiking #views #hiker #appalachian #appalachiantrail2016 #mountainphoto #mountainlife #explore #hikerxplorations #getoutside #newhampshire #presidentialmountains #thewhitemountains #weather #travel #travelnortheast #travelamerica #roamfree #hikersofinstagram

I got a really bad cold this weekend. After loading myself with every vitamin/cold medicine in my house I thought it would be a good idea to drive along the blue ridge parkway. // Long story short...the medicine wore off after awhile. It took me hours to get home bc I had to keep stopping to rest. I kept thinking “I am absolutely miserable, but geeze if this isn’t the most beautiful view and the most beautiful day!”
