The Low Anthem: To Ohio

Just came across The Low Anthem for the first time, and am really digging a lot of songs from their album Oh My God, Charlie Darwin. In particular, I’ve been really taken with their song “To Ohio.”

Guess who’s going to have this looping repeatedly, for the next week or so?

Perhaps it’s the wine I’ve been drinking, but in thinking of Ohio I’m thinking of my time in graduate school, my writer friends. I’m fondly remembering parties, Halloween, silliness, celebrations and farewells.

But in equal measure, Ohio makes me think of two people that should be… that I wish were still around – David Citino and Ann Paeth.

Ohio to me is a lovely place, and a lovely time to remember. I need to make my way back there again.

    • I need to slate a road trip – maybe when it warms up, in the Spring?

      With Larry’s having closed down, where do people go anymore? Is there anywhere that comes close?
