“In Northern Michigan, fall can be a relief. Summers are amazing, but with summer comes pressure. We have to do EVERYTHING in three months. If you don’t do enough summer during summer, you feel it, and it can be a heavy weight in late August. Soon, the leaves start to change, the air gets crisper in the morning, and your mind clicks into a different, slower gear. Then, we collectively reach out and grab the hands of all our hospitality, tourism, wedding, and service industry friends, and pull them up from the summer trenches for a drink and some laughs.
This issue features stories with subjects taking risks, and committing to reevaluating, refreshing, and honoring what they truly care about.
Journalist Rosemary Lane reports on Iliana Regan, a world-renowned chef with critically acclaimed restaurants in Chicago, who opened a fine-dining inn at a hard to find, old hunting camp in the middle of the Hiawatha Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, turning the concept of destination dining upside down. Mia Hagerty brings us a photo story and short documentary about a man who has spent part of the last thirty-three years living on a tiny island in Grand Traverse Bay. Matthew Medendrop needs to get his bicycle from Chicago to Michigan, so he and his dad set out on a difficult, but revitalizing father-son bike ride from the streets of the Windy City to a small lake in Brooklyn, Michigan.
With an old soul eye, young photographer Liam Kaiser captures a man’s love for his vintage motorcycle, and the beauty of his region. Joe Beyer, Executive Director of the Michigan Legacy Art Park, tells a story of how he discovered, and fell in love with the work of Detroit artist Charles McGee. Rebecca Deneau shares how her kids inspire her art, and how sharing her passion with them has already created lasting memories. With clothing as her canvas, Abby Foster gives us insight on her mission with Toile and Stripes.
For us, the eclectic interests of our fellow Northern Michigan friends featured in this issue gives us that crisp, cool morning refresh to help us leap into the creative months, and power through the long, darker seasons ahead.”
