A State of Mind

A large part of central-north Columbus, Ohio is known as "Clintonville." Clintonville is not a city, a village, or any other kind of incorporated political unit. It's a state of mind. It has no official borders. But you can tell when you are inside it. How? One way is to take a walk through the streets and especially back alleys until you begin to see sights like these, encountered on a recent afternoon walk.a little closer...

Signs of the Times

If you have never been to Rushville, Ohio, I recommend a visit. It's an easy drive through beautiful scenery from Columbus, Lancaster, or Zanesville. While in Rushville, have lunch at the Rushville Coffee House and take time to admire this sign at the counter.
