Thread Name: Video: Too Many Shadows (Jean Ritchie/kytrad)
Subject: RE: WATCH/LISTEN-Oldish Video-TooManyShadows(kytrad)
Thanks Jean for the extra tale!

And Rita, that is a really lovely little story there as well. Black Waters always had a real meaning for me as well. I come from the Tuscarawas Valley in Ohio and much of its beauty has been mined to death through an especially ugly process...strip mining. Mineral Rights were sold long before and some of the largest shovels and the biggest dragline ever to mar the earth worked there.
