It is in the smallest and most obscure places that we find so much pride in letting people know where we are from. Place is a connecting point. It calls upon the theory of six degrees of separation. Everyone knows someone from our hometown or at least state. At The Gatherin’ Place in Pie Town I met a man who talked for ten minutes with me about Indiana because he once knew someone who lived there. He could not remember the name of his friend or the town where that friend lived, but the slight association we had through the Hoosier state was a meaningful connection none the less.
