Items in here will include thoughts from wise persons emanating from this special place, the Piney Woods of East Texas. The Big Woods are a special place within the Piney Woods. Even though I was born and raised in this area, I have found it hard to locate anyone claiming to be from there. If you asked someone where the Big Woods was located, they would always point to the East and indicate, over there, just East of here.
Joe H. Sharp, Jr., and his wife Brenda, live on a small lake near Big Sandy. We have been friends for some time, our mothers introduced us before we could walk, I expect, but I cannot remember that far back. Linked below are some recent writings of Joe’s. which are very thoughtful and expressive. Enjoy!
