simple folk - 1

have you heard of appalachia?
it's a cultural region in the united states that stretches from southern new york to alabama.
the people of the appalachian mountains are known for working with their hands and living a simple life.
at cincinnati's appalachian festival
this was evident - from work gloves to
hand-made furniture.
on a chilly weekend (low 37 F last night), participants camp on the grounds,
chat with visitors, and 
enjoy sharing their ways with us.

in many ways a trip back in time.

joy to you!
