Welcome to asylum notes, a blog about things related to my book, Asylum on the Hill: History of a Healing Landscape, published March 2012 by the Ohio University Press. I update the blog two or three times a month.
I am a counselor and an artist – see my blog ArtBreak®. I live in Athens, Ohio with my husband Matthew. Athens is a small town (population 20,000) in rural southeastern Ohio; it is the home of Ohio University and the Athens Lunatic Asylum, now known as The Ridges.
