Did you try to guess where the picture was taken for my Wordless Wednesday post? It is a shot of Carl Sandburg's office, from his home in Flat Rock, NC. We had the chance to tour his home while we were in NC in mid-2008.
The grounds were beautiful, and it was fascinating to learn more about him and his wife (who was quite the champion goat breeder!) One of the fun facts I remember is that every room had a bucket of walking sticks, because people would often bring him one as a gift. The land around his home was very hilly, but he actually never used a walking stick! Another fun fact was that he was good friends with the president of a television manufacturing company, and so had a TV in almost every room -- even though he didn't watch.
