Polk is little piece of heavenPublished 5:43pm Thursday, June 21, 2012
To the Editor:
My wife, Aine, and I, new arrivals in Columbus, are finding North Carolina living a blessing compared to our former home in hot, dry San Antonio, Texas.
North Carolina is like a little piece of heaven. It’s just beautiful and everyone here is so friendly. Never a day goes by that we don’t have an outing or social event to attend. I have to make sure Aine restrains herself before she joins every organization between here and South Carolina. I’m pretty busy at home but plan to go more fully into nature photography soon.
Aine (Anya) McGarity-Love holds a bachelor of arts degree from Houston Baptist University, a master of arts from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and a master of education from the University of Houston. A former school counselor, Aine retired this year hoping to finally have more time to devote to her art. As a current art student of Richard Baker, Aine is busy and happy in Polk County. Aine paints landscapes, seascapes, enjoys nature photography and dabbles in painted crafts.
