...and the blog is STILL walking and talking in Winston.The blog celebrates its first anniversary today. Devoted readers are urged to join the celebration by re-reading the April 19, 2009 entry. During the winter months the blog walked less than it should have, but its sense that it will never tire of exploring Winston-Salem remains undiminished. So many questions remain unanswered. For example, in a little strip of land behind Reynolda Church there are RUINS. What happened here, and when? Jon, it's time to get back to the cul de sacs!
Jon and Susan are professors at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem. Jon is in the Department of Theatre and Dance. He has lived in Winston-Salem for 25+ years. Susan is in Biology, and has lived in Winston-Salem for 5+ years. Jon's neighborhood is Sherwood Forest; Susan's neighborhood is Ashley Forest. Maurice, who lives in the District of Columbia, serves as occasional capital correspondent.
