Visions of old homesteads, remains of trapper’s shacks and failures in their attempts at creating lasting homes that only remain in some¬one’s memories.Intriguing tails and cultural stories from local old timers, and drifters coming and going leaving impressions on the mind; as sum-mers entertained the thoughts and imagination of the youth, growing up on a summer resort in the Michigan woods. Days of eventful, playful and unexpected outcomes while fishing, hunting and maturing through life’s unexpected turns.Antics of times youthfulness, laughter in age’s memories and thoughts, conjuring up poetic im¬ages of abstracted realism, tears and thought that only ones mind and heart can relate to.All those who have turned pages in time will enjoy, relate to, giggle and even shed a tear or two as they turn the pages of this author’s memories and emotions through time.
