Hope, is a good thing…

” I have no idea to this day what those two Italian ladies were singing about. Truth is, I don’t want to know. Some things are best left unsaid. I’d like to think they were singing about something so beautiful, it can’t be expressed in words, and makes your heart ache because of it. I tell you, those voices soared higher and farther than anybody in a gray place dares to dream. It was like some beautiful bird flapped into our drab little cage and made those walls dissolve away, and for the briefest of moments, every last man in Shawshank felt free.”

Ellis Boy “Red” Redding

  1. Each year there is an event hosted the by the AMA called Vintage Motorcycle Days. It takes place in Lexington, Ohio. A short 20 minute ride north will bring you to Mansfield, Ohio. There you can visit the Ohio State Reformatory, AKA Shawshank! Yes, that Shawshank. If you don’t mind, I will share my link to this mysterious setting.
