As of yesterday, my Asheville Potter son who loves the Red Sox is the proud owner of a green folder full of papers with lawyer “language” that says he owns 1.8 acres of land in Madison County, North Carolina. He bought the land from a man named Rob, an artist who appreciates Josh’s art, who lives on adjoining land, and who has gone out of his way to offer guidance to Josh and help make this a reality.
“Was Rob there?” I asked.
“Yes, he brought me some eggs and then when the lawyer left the room we stole some pens,” Josh answered.
Spoken like a true Floyd boy.
Post note: Josh will soon begin construction of a pottery studio and kiln with the Windgate Fellowship money he was awarded. Currently, he’s living on Rachel and Annabelle’s sun porch while renovating what he calls “The Yacht," an Airstream trailer which he’ll live in during construction.
