This highway leads to the shadowy tip of reality: you’re on a through route to the land of the different, the bizarre, the unexplainable…Go as far as you like on this road. Its limits are only those of mind itself. Ladies and Gentlemen, you’re entering the wondrous dimension of imagination. Next stop….The New Blue Ridge Muse.

My apologies to Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, for borrowing from one of his openings for the classic TV series (although this opening was proposed but never used).

You have entered the new Blue Ridge Muse, the result of several months of planning, coding and work.

The changes you see here are part of an evolution of Muse from a conventional blog into a community news site where readers can find not only opinion but also news and information. Between now and the start of the New Year, I will be refining our site redesign and adding features that, I hope, will provide more news and resources for Floyd Countians.

We will be highlighting upcoming meetings of our various governmental bodies with the hope of increasing citizen participation. We will delve more into issues affecting our community.

This is just a step in what will be a continuing process of adapting Muse to the times and needs of the community. Muse will always be a work in progress.

Let me know what you think.
