Besides orange barrels on the road, chili dogs, Kellogg's Corn Flakes, Ford Country, shipwrecks, Mackinac Island, Frankenmuth, Leelanau Wine Tours, Comerica Park, bow-hunting season, Au Sable River, Petoskey stones and Autumn passing in flying colors, what makes Michigan so Michigan?

Labor Day

Blogging on. Still tap-tap-tapping at a keyboard, lost in concentration on one bumpy sentence after another, scrabbling on the rocks of one word at a time.

Chewing pencils into alpha-bit shavings, figuratively speaking. Noting lists and links, tags and twittering friends, books to read, movies to see, games to play, technology to ponder, and other points of interest across the galaxy of the internet.

The voice of the turtle calls. Welcome to

Slowly crossing

How does it feels to start-up a new blog?

  • like working in your pajamas
  • like moving into your first apartment
  • like scrubbing floors, opening windows, unpacking boxes, arranging sock drawers
  • like lighting candles
  • like Trick-or-Treat with no one coming to the door
  • like a turtle crossing in heavy traffic
  • like dancing at water’s edge

Welcome to

(A new path, just down the road.)
