Appalachia is where the bird whistles wake you in the morning and train whistles lull you to sleep at night.
Appalachia is tree-covered mountains and calming streams, lakes for swimming, clouds for watching, stars for gazing, fireflies for snatching, bikes for riding up steep hills, tadpoles for catching barefoot in the creek.
Appalachia is gathering in stone houses built by grandfathers' hands, hiking through forests covered in wildflowers and moss, slurping grandma's warm soup on a cold day, swinging high on rope swings and tickling branches with wiggling toes.
Appalachia is freshly-baked bread, homegrown tomatoes, snap peas, sweet corn, tart cherry pie.
Appalachia is calloused hands and hearty laughs.
Appalachia is home.
