The day after the snow storm here in the Western Upper Peninsula, and we have all been digging, shoveling, and plowing out of our homes, drives, and businesses. I had not one patient cancel today, which addresses the whole notion of SISU that I addressed in my post yesterday. Yoopers, as natives of Michigan;s Upper Peninsula are euphemistically referred to as, are a tough and flexible lot. There are no better folks to live with on this planet than those I have found here.
I have a closest friend, and fellow fine art photographer, who is experiencing some traumatic life issues at the present time. I hope that our art form, which by it’s very nature, focuses one’s attention on the present moment, provides her with a bridge to safer shelter. It has always worked for me…..
Even the Mick, can play guitar next to Keith Richards…..and I do MISS YOU. Man, I still remember learning the guitar and listening to Stone’s albums in the 60’s and getting so EXCITED. They can still do that.
