57F today and we have finally turned the corner. I was thinking of driving four hours east to photograph at Fayette State Park, where I spent a day working on a videography project that is here on the website two or three years ago, but I am going to wait a week or two more for the snow to continue to melt. They are on Lake Michigan in the banana belt of the UP, so they currently will have less than a foot, but more than I want to tromp around in one armed with camera equipment and an attitude that is dead sick of snow. I may just photograph locally, or if I have enough energy, drive up to the Keweenaw. They had a 300+ inches of snow winter there this year. I remember you marveling at the "snow thermometer" your first visit.
Friday evening after my first week back to a full clinical schedule and return to work. Just finished with my picc push of IV and filled the pellet stove and plan on reading further into The Nightingale which I have connected with since the first page. Very pleased to have discovered Kristin Hannah from the New York Times Book Review. My subscription to the online edition is worth it just for the heads up on good books alone. Ms. Hannah is an ex-lawyer turned author that definitely does not use the lexicon of the law in her fiction-very down to earth vocabulary and rich character development combined with a storyline that is always a page turner. I can thank her for staying up too late many evenings since discovering The Great Alone.
When this weather comes, the first thing I think of is Chicago. It has been a long time since I have worked with film there and this year-perhaps this Spring-I will make my return to further pursue funerary art at Bohemian National Cemetery, as well as downtown offerings.
