Dark & Sunny days: Fall Color in Northwest Michigan

Ever had one of those weeks when the one thing you can count on is the unexpected?

The past several weeks have been chock full of rapid-fire randomness for us – a menagerie of small but stacking highs and lows that seem more in step with my erratic, internal pendulum than the external, every-day serenity I’ve opted to immerse myself in up here (the latter being my cure for the former).

From funerals to baby showers, new zine launches to old scene reunions, it’s been a bittersweet symphony of sheer and absolute chaos.

(Even the birds seemed in on the madness last week, hundreds of them swooping with Hitchcockian fervor just before dusk each evening. I blame the recent harvest moon. Okay, and the salmon run.)

While we weren’t busy steppin’ in, steppin’ in, steppin’ into the Twilight Zone, we ventured out to find reprieve in the saturated hues now hanging on the hardwoods. (Never mind the crazy packed into those excursions, too.)

Hopefully life is all sunshine and rainbows on your end, but in case you could use a diversion too, I submit this sampling of fall color distraction, with a dash of Lake Michigan & a side of wicked skies thrown in for good measure πŸ™‚
