It’s not that I haven’t been writing because I have been, it’s more like I haven’t been posting any entries. And that’s for a particular reason.
At first, I wasn’t going to spoil the surprise, but at this point, I can tease the project. The other day I visited my old neighborhood, talked to old friends, and ate at the usual favorites. Then later that day, I read a few of the New York Times’ 36 Hours travel articles because if you didn’t know that I love to travel, then let me remind you that I love to travel. One facet that I’ve noticed in every travel article is how well the New York Times captures a region’s culture through food, music, entertainment, history, art, and the people.
So I thought that I would respectfully copy-cat the New York Times’ 36 Hours by creating a travel article for Dayton, Ohio. And that’s what I’ve been doing for the last couple of days instead of daily entries, basically amassing information about Dayton as best as I can with the hope and intent to fully illustrate its culture.
Please accept this apology and the additional fact that I haven’t dedicated all of my time to the site because I’m leaving home soon, so spending time with family is, of course, more important to me.
