berea, jewel of kentucky
Appalachia is almost over, berea our gateway into flatter lands and longer days, our bellies full of organic greens and co-op sloppy joes and black market milk and gallons of ethiopian coffee, our beards coming in slowly, slowly; our legs acclimating to the constant stress, our achilles tendons turning to sand-dusted jello...and we are officially one-sixth of the way done with the trip.
to our new berea friends: thank you. you are glowing, you are warm.
