headed off on a family fun river raft float trip
not real relaxing as expected
but lots of adventures/misadventures instead
so many laughs and we all survived
who could ask for anything more?
“rejoice as summer should…chase away sorrows by living.”

argo park, huron river, Ann Arbor, michigan, u.s.a. – summer 2019
at a game of
the traverse city pit spitters vs. the wisconsin woodchucks.
cheap food and drinks
dinos, mascot, lively fans, crazy promos,
singing, dancing, kids on the grass,
nice weather, music, good company
and a baseball game too
a very pleasant way to experience an evening.
“baseball is drama with an endless run and an ever-changing cast.”
traverse city, michigan, u.s.a. – summer 2019
a summer evening by the lake in glen arbor, michigan
“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.”
-william r. alger
1 black cat
1 cozy pillow
1 monster doll
1 chocolate bunny with it’s head eaten off
someone has been here
left their mark
ready for backyard movie night.
“every day in every way we are leaving our mark.”
“when picking a leader, choose a peacemaker.
one who unites, not divides.
a cultured leader who supports the arts and true freedom of speech, not censorship.”

grandie j welcomes the summer rain
on a hot day in detroit
‘like a welcome summer rain,
humor may suddenly cleanse and cool the earth, the air and you.”

on the field
littles running and playing in the end zone
and a few of our closest friends
sharing a big night in the big house.
“when we establish human connections within the context of shared
experience we create community wherever we go.”
