Inspiration from the Road

Traveling isn’t only about the destination, it’s also about the journey. Every week, I am fortunate to experience something new as “The OhioTraveler.” But the exploration is also one of thoughts. Whether behind the wheel, on a trail, or water, my mind may wander.

I took this photograph of a relatively unknown waterfall near Hillsboro, Ohio. Later, in a notebook where I log my mileage, I jotted down the words overlaying the photo above.

Over the past 15 years, I have filled a drawer with such thoughts, inspired by the places I’ve visited. Soon, this collection will be published in book form. If you are interested in more writings like this, please email
