“The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”

Flannery O’Conner

This is the upstairs bedroom at Andalusia, Flannery O’Conner’s farm here in Milledgeville. The home was built in the 1850’s and Flannery moved here, with her widowed mother, in 1951 when the first signs of lupus began to appear. Flannery lived here until her death from lupus in 1964. During those 13 years, working in her downstairs bedroom/office, she wrote most of her renowned works. She would sit and write at her typewriter for 3 hours every morning, by then the effects of her disease would make it too hard to write. I had been wanting to take some photographs here for some time, Anna and I made a visit yesterday. Andalusia is a beautiful location with a magical sense of place. I took a roll of film there and will be sharing a few of the photographs over the next few days. I would love to document  the farm more thoroughly one day.
