full moon rising and floating
on grand traverse bay
“the moon was but a chin of gold a day or two ago,
and now she turns her perfect face upon the world below.”-

*life finds a way
“no matter how hard the past is, you can always begin again.”
* the above photo was taken while exploring what was once the traverse city state hospital (1885-1989), and more recently has been restored and given new life as the traverse city village commons. most buildings are now teeming with life and commerce, while other buildings still await their second chance, ghost stories and all.
while visiting my niece’s school
in the beautiful woods of northern michigan
i realized that it wouldn’t be
a real end of their school year goodbye
without a bear to see them off.
“but of course, it isn’t really good-bye, because the forest will always be there…
and anybody who is friendly with bears can find it.”

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.”
