Reader says Wed 21 Dec 2016 CM edition buoyed his day

By a known-to-us reader who wishes to remain anonymous
My yesterday started early morning with the visual feast of Mr. Robert Ellis' breathtaking Sparksville-centric photographs. It ended yesterday evening with Ms. Whitehurst's brilliantly crafted winter's solstice word-sketch and accompanying photographs.
Those two features, along with the Billy Joe Fudge well-told reminisce of growing up on "The Ridge" and ye olde CM editor's image (and cutline) of Burkesville's Hill Street snakeskin icicle, buoyed my day considerably above the "slings and arrows" that happenstanced along.
These breathtaking microcosmic takes on "ordinary" things bring to mind the opening lines from William Blake's "Auguries of Innocence":
"To see a World in a Grain of SandThank you, ColumbiaMagazine, for bringing such wondrous words and images to your readers. - Anon
Much oblige, Anon. It was a fabulous day to be privileged to post all this. It was a day we live for, one rich in 'back-to-our-roots' features we love the most. It's a reminder that, in the beginning, CM was established as archive of such histories, stories, and photographs. Along the way, we've added news features once found only in print, and broadcast media, and the response has been overwhelming, but we'll never forget what our purpose was when we started this modest endeavor. Thanks, Anon, for making this Christmas one of our best ever. - Ed & Linda Waggener
