Take Me Home, Country Roads!

Well, I'm off to "Almost Heaven," West Virginia, for two weeks. Yes, it really is as green and gorgeous as this photo shows (and the photo below shows exactly how Kanawha State Forest looked back in the early '70s when I'd party there with my glam rock hillbilly hippie friends.) So there will be no blogging from L.A. Woman till after the 23rd or so. But stay tuned for exciting postings on scintillating subjects such as Jack Black's Bloody Arm (on the set of Ben Stiller's new movie Tropic Thunder shot in Kauai) and more info on The Source Family, the subject of a new book everyone's talking about!

FYI, The Source was L.A.'s first health food nut commune and the subject of August's PAPER/L.A. Woman column (on stands now!). The Source Family will also (allegedly) be a cover story in the L.A. Weekly soon, be featured in the L.A. Times and the bidding war for the movie rights has already begun (remember, you read it in PAPER first!).

But for this former glam rock hillbilly hippie chick, thoughts of west coast granola sex cults will be shunted aside in favor of wholesome family reunions, pecan pie and maybe a few mason jars full of White Lightening (actually, maybe not the latter considering what it did to my innards when I was 17.) But it won't all be hee-haws and yee-haws. We'll finally be holding a memorial service for my mother - taking her back 'home' which, yes, really is a slice of heaven as these photos will attest. And there's no "Almost" about it. It really can be Heaven (mountaintop removal notwithstanding.)

BTW, these images were taken by Mr. Steve Payne whose exquistie photography work is well known throughout the state. Check out more of his spectacular photos at Steve Payne Photography here.

And see ya'll in two weeks!
