About Searching for Home in Ohio

When people ask me where I am from, I tell them that I live in Ohio. This subtle deflection comes from the fact that while I have lived in the Midwest for nearly two decades, it still feels slightly foreign to me.  Though this project began as way to get to know my adoptive state,  somewhere along the way I began to embrace the emotional distance I felt; to give myself the freedom to wallow in my Romantic quest for home.
