CLERMONT— How do you describe homesickness?

Is it possible to be homesick for a place you know little about?

Why are Kentuckians so infatuated with their home state?

These questions are what prompted Lexington native Jesse Donaldson to write 120 passages attempting to answer the age-old question: can we ever really go back home?

Inspired by the 120 counties of Kentucky, “On Homesickness” features 120 passages dedicated to the various history, events, or make-up of each county.
