Mackinac Island, Michigan, USA – Spring 2020
(similar to a typical group I saw running into target today)
just a few days to go before christmas
it’s sunny and almost 50 degrees
in the lower peninsula of michigan
the shorts, the sandals, the sunglasses, the smiles
the coats stay behind
close your eyes
feels almost like summer
we are a hardy lot.
“heat is heat.”
and here we go, marching straight into the corn.
“the future is an ever-shifting maze of possibilities until it becomes the present.”
at nixon farms, dexter, mi, usa – october 2019
an exciting and cost-effective option
offered up to
the adventurous sweets eaters of the world
inside the dam candy store
“all the candy corn that was ever made was made in 1911.”
dam candy store, fishtown, leland, michigan, u.s.a. – July 2019
“does the walker choose the path, or the path the walker?”
either way, a good choice.

“after every storm the sun will smile;
for every problem there is a solution,
and the soul’s indefeasible duty is to be of good cheer.”

I am the driver
but best match
the back seat descriptor.
