July 11, 2017, Canton, OH-
Many folks, finding themselves in this bustling eastern Ohio former industrial center, make a beeline for the Professional Football Hall Of Fame. I have an interest in seeing that institution, some day, but it is a full-day excursion. This afternoon, my attention was drawn to downtown Canton, specifically to the Arts District. In any given city, this is where the People rise up and say,”We’re still here. We have a voice, and a vision.”
Yes, football is a focus, but far from the whole focus.
I could see a Comicon being held in this city. Monsters, both metallic and painted, abound in downtown.
Jim Thorpe fought his own demons, and inspired many to fight their own.
Now, back to the Comicon idea. Here are some ideas for those who enjoy cosplay.
I think extraterrestrials would get a surprisingly warm welcome, here.
This creature, though, maybe not so much.
It may be a macho town, of sorts, but Canton knows that, in the long run, it is Woman who leads the way.
I would find my way through another round of storms, in the early evening, and onward to Pennsylvania, without much trouble. Ohio, it’s been a pleasure to tarry a bit.
