I dedicate this beginning collection of simple writings to the greatest gift that God has given me in this life: my wife and children. Their love and support though the many trials we have faced in our sojourn together have been my strength and joy. Thank you. I thank God every day for you.
It is my hope and prayer that these short essays and verses may lead the readers to see – even if only a little bit – more clearly the wonder of the creation around us. I have the unique privilege of working almost daily in the dunes along the shore of one of our greatest natural wonders, the Great Lakes. The more I learn, I realize that there is much more that I do not know.
I have spent most of my life within a couple of miles of Lake Michigan’s eastern shore. I hope that the sense of awe I used to feel as a child has not dimmed with time. Of that, I guess only you can be the judge.
I greatly value your comments. Please feel free to contact me at:

May God grant that we taste of His greatness, power and wisdom as we contemplate what He has created in the fascinating out-of-doors. So many flowers – so little time. See you outside!
