Kip and I recently became 80% work-free.  Our new focus is the use of our brain’s other side…the creative side.  Kip with his modern art and assemblages …me with my writing and impressionistic photography.

The beauty of this decision’s immediate impact: we can finally park indefinitely in our most happy places…here with our Bayfield family, and in the Sleeping Bear Lakeshore Park on the Leelanau Peninsula.

Today playing at CedarCliffe…

Built in 2005…Our house finally becoming our home

The evening started like this…the diamonds… speaking their story.
…then the story begins to unfold…

…peace touches the earth as sweet pea giggles with happiness.
