Purposeful walking....
May is national walking month in the UK, and BBC News Magazine has kicked it off by arguing that purposeless walking is becoming a thing of the past.

Get it straight! David Lauderdale sets it that way! "It is a singular place. It is a proper noun. The #Lowcountry is not an adjective and noun, as two words make it."

This book endorsed by Pat Conroy exudes everything one needs in romance, Lowcountry and bliss (perceived or otherwise)...
The story of 25-year-old news reporter Teresa Bruce's close friendship with 82-year-old modern dance legend Byrne Miller begins on a veranda beside a river on a sweltering Lowcountry morning.

David Lauderdale @islandpacket delivers a powerful message on prejudice with Bank of America as a backdrop to one man's vision for change, http://lnkd.in/FNaarZ
In the wake of the Trayvon Martin case, the idea of lunch together for people of different races and religions sounds encouraging.

Communicator. Engaged. Formidable.
Introduction
The Individual
Ann-Marie Adams spent a great deal of her early life in Appalachia ~West Virginia and Tennessee~ and relocated from Upstate New York to the Lowcountry region in 2003. She spends her working hours as a freelance consultant in the public affairs arena, serves on the Redevelopment Commission for the Town of Port Royal and is an active volunteer with several nonprofit organizations. She contributes daily to an inspirational series reflecting on life, Word Strings of Wisdom [2013 Life Greetings; 2013 Awake to the Notion; 2012 Reflection on a Meaningful Life] is a passionate advocate for reading, never misses a meal or snack (nor should any child go hungry), rallies for road trips to enjoy food, wine, craft beer, and music…AND believes every story has a purpose. Elder care has proven to be her greatest challenge, but has also served in defining her role midlife moving forward.

Creative Life
Writer. Illustrator. Storyteller. 
AQUABET is an original art series derived from coastal living that embodies the 26 letters of the American Alphabet. The series continues to be published in a variety of artistic formats from personal note cards to fine stationary to educational tear sheets to custom orders in the interior design and home furnishings market. The letters have also been crafted as a medium for storytelling in community development. Thereby, strengthening old relationships and building new ones to reveal the soul of a community. Like the constant nature of the ocean tide, the letters continue to ebb and flow from one unique purpose to another brilliant idea or platform.
