The Network

This is a portal to the various current and previously published web productions  by retired physician W. Lorraine Watkins, a current resident of the mountain foothills of North Georgia,

icon  linked web pages and websites include observations and opinion of current events and life, Fireflies and Bonfires., Contemporaneous and past creations, diaries and memoirs are contained in Mountain Diary.    Prairie Tree   is a narrative history of the New England Watkins family. (first published on a domain purchased the second day private domains became available to the public.)

The just now being built history of American feminism, The Feminist Path. will contain some new and some material previously published by the authors. There is also a website devoted to, Morning Worship, previously published as a daily diary.

All websites, are in various phases of restoration and creation. One hopes visitors will bear with frustrations as the processes  of reconstruction go forward toward. Graphics created by and photographs, videos taken by the author are given priority over outside sources for illustration. In fact a number of the photographs were  taken by the author one day on the way from her lakeside home to the grocery store or on visits to mountain friends..

A semi-rural environment provides a particular intimacy  with the aesthetic banquet of nature and its cycle of seasons, flourishing life and harvest to death bears also the promise of restoration. The influence of external events, public and to person display their impact the context of this long held centering belief.  More description  is found in the introduction of The Mountain Diary.  It’s evolution is especially evident in the daily diaries originally published as Morning Worship.
