Never been. Should’ve gone.

My parents eloped - leaving Madison County to LaJunta - where I was born. The elopement and the move itself was a son’s act of rebellion against the father - and the choice of a place so alien witnessed the son’s leaving the father in every possible way.

There are no dust devils in Richmond. There are no magnolias in Lajunta.

I do have the yearning for one trip back to Kentucky, Up to the back hills of Owsley county - Ricetown, Hazard, Traveler’s Rest, Beattyville, Boonville, Lucky Fork - just follow the black top to the dirt roads to the end of everything - where the old farms and barns have been abandoned - see it before the kudzu swallows it all.
