: : From the Hendersonville Times-News, June 14 (6A-7A):
: : "'Until you watch it, you can't converse with me,' said one woman who attended the Second Annual Great Mohican Gathering held this weekend at Chimney Rock Park and mountain sites...
: : "While those who attended the gathering see it as a fun way to visit with people who have a common interest, some siadtheir other friends question why they would travel to Western North Carolina to spend the weekend with people they met on the internet.
: Hello Sarah,
: It was so nice to meet you, and I especially enjoyed your participation in our *campfire* discussions. It was I - the unnamed woman - that made the first comment, but it was taken a little out of context I think. It made it sound like I didn't talk with people unless they'd seen the movie, but what my comments inferred was that unless you'd seen the movie, you may not understand my passion for it, or the Gathering, or the website, etc. I thought it made things sound a little EXclusive, when I think we'd all agree that we're a very INclusive bunch all around. Anyway, I hope it wasn't perceived that way!
If it makes you feel better, as I read the article and read it out loud to everyone else, your comment came across as though from someone with a sense of humor about what the Gathering meant to them, and that it was said in a sense of fun! I'll send you a copy when I send you your photos and negatives, since it was you, if you would like a copy!
Speak to you soon. LHK,
Sarah the Photo Maniac
