We are just finishing the process of creating a nature preserve for our acreage in Emmet County, Michigan. I have been all evening writing a short history of our reasons for deciding to protect this land for the wildlife and the future of this forest and meadow place of natural beauty. This is a winter dawn there a couple of years ago. The beauty of this place has nourished me for 20 years and more. It was only accidental that we went there, and thrilling that we can protect it.
I was going to write about "twinless twins" tonight. Thornton Wilder was one (his twin was stillborn) and so was Elvis. This is the main thing explored by the new book on Elvis that I started last night. More to come. Good night!
