I'm Lee Knapp, a veteran ceramic artist, entrepreneur ((website hidden)), and public high school U.S. history teacher. I'm a published author, have a screenplay to hawk, and am currently working on another book. I have three grown accomplished sons: one in Portland, Oregon; one in Brooklyn, NY, and one close by in Charlottesville. All five are alumni of the College of William and Mary. Until visiting them in Portland and Brooklyn, fondest travel memories are of Martha's VIneyard working as a camp counselor to the rich and powerful's kids way, way back in the 1980s when the stock market was around 1000. Living in the foothills of Virginia with their blue reminder from the front porch has been a dream.
My grandmother ran a boarding house in North Carolina for decades. It was called the Norlina Tourist Home so it is with much tradition that I call my place the Blue Sky Tourist Home where I hope folks can come to slow down and breathe in a litle fresh air.
