Eureka Springs

Nora Maynard went to Eureka Springs to write, but found herself pulling out her
camera instead, and remembering that her religious upbringing had nothing to do with church, Christ or absolution. It was all about ashrams, magnets and bowls of brown rice. The healing waters of Eureka Springs brought it all back. Thanks to Mountain Sprout for the tunes.
