Burial will fol- By Joseph Mazzella As a writer I am always looking for inspiration. I can always tell that God has a sense of humor too, because my best inspirations often come at the most inconve- nient times when I have noth- ing to write them down on. I can remember once, years ago, when I was walking with my children around a local lake in the summer- time. The sun was sparkling off the crystal clear waters. Butterflies were dancing above the wild flowers. The shady trees were full of chirping birds. It felt so peaceful there. I smiled and relaxed. Of course, that is when the idea for a new story suddenly appeared, fully formed, in my mind. We were still a half-mile away from our car and I was afraid my aging brain would forget part of the story before I got there. I took my pen out of my pocket then and started writing down on the palm of my hand. Later, after I had trans- ferred the inspiration to pa- per and was washing the ink off my hand, I laughed and asked God why he always seemed to speak to my heart at the strangest times. As soon as I said it, I heard in my mind, "Because that is the only time you are listen- ing!" Maybe if we all want to hear from God more often we should shut up and listen. God speaks to us in the si- lence of our souls. God whis- pers to us in the quiet of the storm. God talks to us, but never talks over us. If you want to hear God's inspira- tion and guidance in your heart and mind, you have to shut off your own noise. If you want to feel God's love inside you, you have to si- lence the chattering monkey within. We are all children of God and he is forever ready to love us, inspire us, guide us, improve us, and help us to growinto the people we were meant to be. His inspiration comes to us through our thoughts, our intuition, our Local Girl Accepted Into Prestigious Program Gilmer County High School graduate, Guinevere Beime, has been accepted into and is participating in the prestigious Entrepre- neurship for the Public Good Program (EPG) at Berea College in Kentucky. The EPG program only accepts 20 people into each cohort every year; Guinevere is a participant of the 12th Cohort. The EPG program spans over two summers with the In:st summer consisting of a four week class that gives the students an active learn- ing experience so they may gain the entrepreneurial mindset through hands on activities and working in their community as well as other communities in Ap- palachia. Guinevere's co- hort has had the opportu- nity to interact with civic leaders in order to make Berea a trial town, so they may increase tourist rev- enue. Along with this, she was able to bike seventeen miles along the Creeper Trail andgo rock climbing in order to gain the Adven- ture Tourist mindset, so she may find out how to bring Adventure Tourism to Berea. The second four weeks, the students will be working with rural commu- nities in the Kentucky re- gion and implementing this knowledge to help better the community. The sec- ond summer is an intern- ship chosen by the students approved by the head of the program, Peter Hackbert, where they may further ap- ply the new skills they have acquired. Guinevere says, she is ex- cited to have this opportu- nity to learn about entre- preneurship, so she may apply it to her future goals, and she's thrilled she gets to share my experience with such brilliant colleagues.
