The longer things stay the same, the more they change...
Saluda looks remarkably the same as it looked when I first lived here over forty years ago. There have been a lot of changes since then, though. The building in the photo housed my sculpture studio during that former life. It was an abandoned service station. The grease rack was still in place.
My neighbor, Walter dropped in one day to see what I was up to, and sat for a few moments while I did a little portrait sketch. I remember his hat and his mustache. Later, I carved a mask from the sketch. Walter said it didn't look anything at all like him, and it didn't, but a lady from Pennsylvania who didn't know Walter from Adam bought it. She must have liked it okay because she hasn't brought it back yet.
