My Great Aunt Arizona
Arizona is born and bred in the back hollows of the Blue Ridge Mountains and she never leaves it except for the brief time when she goes away to learn to be a teacher. She had wanted to travel far and do great things, but family circumstances dictate otherwise. Miss Arizona grows up to teach in the same one-room schoolhouse she attended as a child. She's a reader and she's visited many far away places in her reading. For a long time she hopes that someday she'll get to visit those wondrous places but never does. However, she often tells children that someday they may go where she has never been.
