Solitude (at Cosi Center of Science and Industry)

Have you seen the movie, Angels & Demons? There’s this scene where the two main characters are walking through the streets of Europe discussing historic events. At the same time, flashbacks of those events and the historic streets on which they occurred are superimposed on the screen so it appears that the characters are walking through the older streets instead of those of modern-day. This scene stood out to me because it’s exactly what I do in my head whenever I travel or visit someplace with an obvious history.

Last night during our #FranklintonMeet, we ventured to Strongwater Food & Spirits. When I turned to my left upon entering, I saw what you see in the photo, and I couldn’t help but picture in my mind the person who must have sat there.

So here’s my question to all of you: Who do you see? (at Strongwater Food and Spirits)

Whenever I hear about the human connections made via Instagram, Eric (@littlecoal) immediately comes to mind. He’s approachable and genuine and just an all around great guy!

“I like to think about the First Law of Thermodynamics. Where no energy in the Universe is created and none is destroyed. That means that every bit of energy inside us, every particle, will go on to be a part of something else. Maybe live as a dragon fish, or a microbe, maybe burn in a supernova ten billion years from now. And every part of us now was once a part of some other thing. I mean, a storm cloud, a mammoth…a monkey. Thousands of thousand of other beautiful things, and they’re just as terrified to die as we are. We gave them new life, a good one I hope.”

After admiring her photos for months, I finally got to meet @natalina614 on Sunday! (at Mechanicsburg, Ohio)

Although incredibly hot and humid, the sunset this past Sunday evening was superb. I got this shot of Kara (@kweate) as Natalina (@natalina614), Megan (@megancorwin), Jenna (@longjenna) and myself walked back to the car. Big thanks to Robert (@robertwtobin) for organizing this intimate Instameet. It truly was a Midsummer Night’s Dream! (at Mechanicsburg, Ohio)

One wish by land, two wishes by sea.
