  • BLOG — Flushed: the Fire Hydrant Story

    Hydrant Horizontal

    “It seems like something is amiss when a hydrant is open because they are characters on the edge of the street, stolid chunks of metal that are part of a city’s impenetrable infrastructure..but opening hydrants is a routine part of city maintenance.”

    The world is always on the verge of being something else. Call it the temple/missile effect. I think the world’s drawn double, like an optical illusion.

  • BLOG-Mile Mark on the Little Miami Scenic Trail

    Brian Housh On MV Scenic Trial

    Here in Yellow Springs in the 1980s, local residences saw a railway that could be converted to a community asset and connector. Today, the Rail to Trails Conservatory sees a pathway to resurface our maps with the stuff of enduring legacies.

    My legs were pumping at a rate that suggested the Rabbit’s “I’m late, I’m late!” more than the dreamy, psychedelically mellowed Caterpillar. Every time I noticed how fast I was going, I slowed down. That’s all you can really do: notice, and let your grip go.

  • BLOG — On travel, growing up, and Current Cuisine

    With Friends

    “A lot of my favorites are still on the menu, so it transports me back to my yesteryears. It gives me a warm feeling that this is home, and I like that. I know at some point [being in a small town] will catch up to me because I love big city living, but right now it’s perfect for me. There’s a lot of great harmonics and healing here.”
