Many large cities have walkways that follow their respective waterways. Chicago, Indianapolis and Minneapolis are just a few that I have seen. Milwaukee is following suit and has so far built about 3 miles of cement filled trail. In some areas you currently need to walk across a bridge and switch to the opposite sideContinue reading “Walk The Art River”
The view from the top of the tower on Powder Hill gives one the sense of what it feels to fly over the tree tops. The human eye can see great distances when there are no obstructions and from the Powder Hill tower you can see neighboring Holy Hill as well as land and distantContinue reading “Moulin Kames: Elevation 1350”
I am writing from my studio looking out the window to my back yard affording too, a slice of my neighbors yard. It seems as though I can see the time lapse of the trees leaves unfurl, but I know that is an exaggeration. The many hosts on the other hand, do seem to expandContinue reading “Montage”
Only 30 minutes north of Milwaukee and a short bike ride east of Grafton, Wisconsin, set atop a 100 foot bluff, exists a paradise of photo opportunities and plein air painting. Lion’s den Gorge county park holds 1.5 miles of gravel and boarded hiking trails running throughout the park. Parts of the trails are handicapContinue reading “Into The Lion’s Den”

For years I’d driven past the property at 2145 Brown Deer Road thinking it was the home of an artist. There were no signs, only an eight to 10 foot wooden fence with colorful sculptures peeking out over the top. In the past few years I’ve learned of The Lynden Sculpture Garden but it wasn’tContinue reading “At Lynden”
On days when I don’t have time to find a long wood to hike, I just step out of my door and see what I can find. I almost always come across one or many things worth the telling of a story. When I moved into this neighborhood the woman living next door took meContinue reading “One Walk”
The first time I went to Harrington State Park was in the late 1990’s. I’d been on the way to Terry Andrae Park when I saw the sign for Harrington Beach and took a B-line to see what it was all about. Unfortunately I mistook the entrance for a different road and drove to theContinue reading “The Beach at Harrington”
Have you ever had one of those days when you feel that life is overwhelming and you simply need a quiet open space? I’ve had more than my share in the last couple of years and even a short time away from “it all” is the best plan. I leave my lists on the tableContinue reading “Beach Days”
One Hundred and thirty four years ago two 14 or 15 year old girls got on a ship in Ireland and sailed to America. They found their way to Racine, Wisconsin where they may, or may not have, had relatives waiting for their arrival. They were brave souls. At the time of the girls immigration,Continue reading “The Root of Irish Eyes”
