About me

Occupation writer/photographer/dreamer
Location Michigan's Upper Peninsula, United States
Introduction I am a writer/photographer/dreamer who is lucky enough to live in a state that is shaped like a mitten below the bridge, and a running rabbit in the upper reaches. For that reason alone, I believe that Michiganders are a different breed. I've lived in two other pretty remarkable states--California and Hawaii--but here I am in my dotage, living in the state I love most, and reveling in all it has to offer. Come along with me and you'll see it, too.
