I was born and raised on the south side of Youngstown, in the great state of Ohio. What makes Ohio so great? Ohio State football, for one. Beautiful fall weather and White House Fruit Farm. Grandpa’s Cheese Barn. The Canfield Fair. Cedar Point. Fields of lightning bugs flickering softly against the background of a July twilight. When the snow falls, it packs into all the potholes in the road.
And sometimes, in the summer and if you’re lucky enough, luna moths. Those are a rare sight but one you’ll never forget. They’ll make you believe in fairies.
