Just a few miles south of my parents' house lies the lovely village of Yellow Springs, Ohio. It's sort of like a little oasis of artsiness and liberalism in conservative Southwestern Ohio. I find myself spending a lot of time there when I'm back home. The Antioch Writers' Workshop, Ohio Silver, and Dino's Cappucinos are some highlights. The kids are partial to Mister Fub's Party, an eclectic toy store that has been there at least since I was in college.
Have spent time there with some very good friends, taken yoga classes at a lovely studio on Dayton Street.
And, of course, there is the Local Celebrity, whom the kids and I saw hanging out on a bench the other day.
I think I'll head into the village for a latte now...
