Remade In The U.P. eh!

Remade In The U.P. eh!

Marquette Michigan – How do I explain the sheer shock and excitement of watching women strut down the runway clad in curtains, bedsheets, tablecloths, and t-shirts looking as if they were out of a fashion catalog or magazine? The (re)design fashion show at the Marquette Regional History Center proves that even here in the U.P. […]

Vagabond Kitchen: Sunsets and Sunrises

Vagabond Kitchen: Sunsets and Sunrises

8-4-15 Sunsets and sunrises layer color lines across my memory. Summer days beach basking, evening speeds into morning faster than hummingbirds in flight. Our car and belongings are full of sand, tiny pebbles, lake water layered, collected from too many places to count. Lakes: Superior, Michigan, Manistique, Crooked and countless rivers and streams toe-dabbled along […]

Torn Between Red and White? For Halloween, Try Orange Wines

Torn Between Red and White? For Halloween, Try Orange Wines

Torn between white and red wines? Orange might be the perfect happy medium–especially with Halloween parties around the corner. Orange wines are similar to white wine, but with the full-bodied, tannic taste of a red and a copper-color. Though there are different methods, orange wines are typically made by allowing the grapes to macerate in […]

Vagabond Kitchen: Bliss Remix

Vagabond Kitchen: Bliss Remix

Memoirs and recipes from the Vagabond Kitchen experience at Bliss Fest 2015 7-27-15 I sat outside the home-tent, sun slinking, still hot, behind untidy pines. Carp fed ten feet away in the shoreline’s shallow, reedy, lily-pad laced water. Their mouths made quick “Snap!” noises as they snatched bugs from the surface. Their spotted bodies seemed […]

Meditation: Why should I do it?

Meditation: Why should I do it?

So what is all this business about Meditation?  I heard someone say the other day that “meditation is truly revolutionary”, but meditation has been around for thousands of years. What is the big deal?! The revolution we are talking about is the inevitable “change” resulting from a revolution.  The change that meditation has on our […]

Vagabond Kitchen: Gus

Vagabond Kitchen: Gus

8-3-15 My written updates from the Vagabond Kitchen — essays and recipes detailed and recorded—have been sporadic. I’ve paced around my notebooks, taking food pictures and writing down ingredients. I’ve finished an 800+ page novel and begun another lengthy fictional diversion. This is the essay I’ve been avoiding—the aching loss spilled in ink, then typed […]

The Vagabond Kitchen: Sleep, Bread, and Brie

The Vagabond Kitchen: Sleep, Bread, and Brie

6-24-15 Being a vagabond means sleeping in many places: guest bedrooms, deep woods, decrepit farmhouses. Means plastic bags of dirty clothes. Toilet paper rolls on the dashboard. Damp, bundled tents in the back seat. Vagabonding means sleeping in many different beds: the rental house, down blankets on the hardwood floor because the bed was in […]

The Vagabond Kitchen: Mosquito Song And Hard Ground

The Vagabond Kitchen: Mosquito Song And Hard Ground

6-23-15 Even inside the car and tent, the no-see-ums still bit me. Their little bodies are so tiny they’re barely detectable amongst the freckles and moles peppering my body like constellations in a clear night sky. Mosquitoes hummed, swarming tenderest bits of skin every time I exposed myself to pee. Blackflies attacked my ankles, leaving […]
