Telemetry Coffee Roasters:

‘Telem’, as it’s often affectionately called, is a small coffee shop in downtown Cedarville, OH. It rests on the banks of Massie’s Creek Gorge atop the Cedarville Dolomite, and served as a fantastic place to drink coffee and relax while working on writing projects, doing homework, or eyeing through the pages of a good book. A couple of my friends and I used to meet every Saturday morning to enjoy just that (except for the homework part).

The first picture is a self-portrait showing one the best spots around––the window seat in the side room. Though, of course, it being my favorite spot to study is just an opinion. Yet, next to the coffee and left of my notebook is the most precious and important book in the world––and I’d argue that’s not up for debate. It’s the amazing Word of God given to us by God that we might know and love the him more than anything else. Indeed, that’s what those God-breathed verses herald.


There aren’t a lot of places sitting around anymore that feel wild. Maybe it’s the seemingly constant sound of an interstate behind or the fact that you can get just about anywhere you need to by driving a car down a paved road or something entirely different––I’m not quite sure. Regardless of the end muse of such a debate Ontario and Michigan’s coast surrounding Lake Superior are taking up a refreshing lot of that ‘wild’ floor space. Lake Superior Provincial Park boasts 600 square miles of wilderness blanketing a small portion of the lake and has a handful of panoramic views looking across big blue.

We hadn’t quite stopped for lunch but we had stopped for the view and spent a few seconds singing the Doxology atop a k-feldspar dominated granite outcrop. Praising the true rock with our feet on a rock––nice.
