I love Michigan! There is always new beauty to discover. It is the place I’d rather be. (Lake Michigan is “Memory Lake”) I now live in Virginia but my exploration of this beauty continues because Andrew McFarlane posts a new picture of startling beauty every day on his blog “Michigan in Pictures”. I’m not sure how he manages it, given the inevitability of life’s surprises, but it’s been nine years and he’s still at it. I only know, (as I rededicate myself to blogging in 2015), I am grateful for his efforts. I’m honored to re-blog his year-end compilation.
