Appalachian Morning

Appalachian Morning

Early morning haze dusts the air as we begin to make out the colors of the sunrise on the eastern ridges of the Appalachian Mountains along the border between Virginia and West Virginia. The nearest town, Wardensville, WV, lies in the clearing. The irregular border once defined nothing more than two regions of a single state with different economic interests based on their varied landscape and resources. The borderline seems random in the single dimension of a map, but it becomes more clear as we see it for what it is and we begin to define all the tangible features of the networked mountains and valleys. As with anything, there are multiple dimensions to our realities and our perspectives that define the world in which we live.
