Uwharrie Books, Locust, NC

October 13, 2009 by etelizabeth. I will be signing my book, The Long Night Moon, @ Uwharrie Books in Locust, NC on Saturday, Oct. 17th, from 10 – 2 pm. This book store sits by the highway, in between two other stores. When entering, a small lobby invites you to step farther on, and into a peach of a book store. Take a slow look around: new books greet your eyes, their fresh ink smell delightfully invade your senses, carefully used books beg to be handled, and books that once caused gossip to spread, ask for a second glance. And as the eyes move along, the aroma of baked goodies cloud your thinking, and draw your stare to the long glass counter. My, oh, my! Pull a book from its resting place, new, old, it doesn’t matter, select a sweet treat, add a drink in hand, and slip down into a chair next to a table. Are you in heaven, yet? Stop time, feed your mind, satisfy your taste buds and indulge in the world of words waiting to be read. See you there, Elizabeth T.

Travel Notes

October 8, 2009

I recently visited Honduras and during a tour, our van stopped at an iguana farm (never knew there was such a place…or thing). For instance, I walked freely among iguanas moving all around me, giving me a glance now and then, but not stopping to investigate the strange feet in their path. Also, they encountered baby chicks wandering about…still never pausing to look at the little feathery creatures right under their (sometimes massive) claws. I was awed at the size of the mature male iguanas, and at the low hanging extra skin wagging from underneath their throats (and commonly, these bloated pouches were of bright colors: red, yellow, ocher). It was the feeding times that were eye-popping: iguanas, chickens, and their chicks, all tumbled in a heap piled three or four deep, and all eating greens thrown to them by workers. It was an eating frenzy with heads, claws, tails going back and forth, and chickens clucking, and baby chicks dodging as they scrambled for a green stem. Awesome to watch!
