New Author Webpage

Meanderings and Muses isn't going anywhere.


I do have a new webpage which will focus mostly on my writing.

If you're interested in reading more about my books, anthologies, and events, please click over to "Kaye Wilkinson Barley"

There are even a few videos of me reading from "Whimsey: A Novel," and from other favorite authors' work.

With more videos still to come.

The new page is a work in progress with plans for still more to come
- I'm just still trying to figure out exactly what that might be -
so check back from time to time, please.

See you there!

Crossnore, Part Two

There's a wonderful little chapel up the hill from The Crossnore Fine Arts Gallery - The E. H. Sloop Chapel was built in 1956 of river rock.

And in this church is a fresco by renowned fresco artist Benjamin F. Long, who has done a number of frescoes in the state.  There's a Benjamin F. Long Fresco Trail you can see at his webpage -

The fresco in Crossnore is titled "Suffer the Little Children."

It measures 16' x 9' and is on the chapel's back wall.

And as you turn to leave the church, these are the stained glass windows across the front wall.

'tis a lovely spot, indeed.

What a lovely part of the world you live in and near! I am quite envious. I have grown to appreciate the beauty of the Illinois prairies, but I miss the Ozark and Boston Mountains where I lived growing up. Your photos of the school and church and their surroundings are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your trip.

Lovely. I so miss the little churches in England. Everything does tend to be bigger in Texas.
