From The Heat To Souvenirs, Blogger Finds Inspiration From Grand Canyon

One of the, probably unfair, stereotypes of bloggers is that they do their writing in their basements. For George Jacobi, the setting could not have been more different.

The Connecticut retiree followed his wife to Arizona earlier this year, as she spent several months working at the Grand Canyon Research Library.

While he was here, he wrote the blog “ Inspiration Point” — musing on everything from the heat to wildfires to buying souvenirs. Jacobi discusses how he came to write this blog. 

Mark Brodie is a co-host of The Show, KJZZ’s locally produced news magazine. Since starting at KJZZ in 2002, Brodie has been a host, reporter and producer, including several years covering the Arizona Legislature, based at the Capitol.
