We Write.

“We write every day, we fight every day, we think and scheme and dream a little dream every day. Manuscripts pile up in the kitchen sink, run-on sentences dangle around our necks. We plant purple prose in our gardens and snip the adverbs only to thread them in our hair. We write with no guarantees, no certainties, no promises of what might come and we do it anyway. This is who we are.” -Tareheh Mafi

Reed Gold Mine is the site of the first authenticated discovery of gold in the United States in 1799. John Reed, a former Hessian soldier, discovered a 'gold substance' in the water of Little Meadow Creek in Cabarrus County, North Carolina, and began the gold rush in this country.
