“I knew, of course, that trees and plants had roots, stems, bark, branches
and foliage that reached up toward the light. But I was coming to realize
that the real magician was light itself“.
In Michigan, we are welcoming the return of Spring and its special magic, dropping from Heaven, filtering through the treetops, and leaving gossamer strands of light below.

I had the whole sky in my eyes and it was blue and gold.
—Albert Camus, L’Etranger
Blue and Gold complement each other as dusk softly envelops a Michigan lake. Tranquility is your companion on a humid July evening.

And who shall say–whatever disenchantment follows–that we ever forget magic; or that we can ever betray, on this leaden earth, the apple-tree, the singing, and the gold?
Thomas Wolfe, Look Homeward, Angel
Matthaei Gardens, Michigan
If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs,
…is more elastic, more starry, more immortal- that is your success. All nature is your congratulation, and you have cause momentarily to bless yourself.
