Many thanks to Sally Cronin for this wonderful coming-out party! PhoKu is a taste of my life here in Westland, MI in visual and verse. I am as honored to have this book to share with you as I am to have to support with which to share my book.

Thank you to Colleen for the invite to participate in this photo gallery.
My sister, Lorraine, is the tree decorator in this house. She has such a grand time so my brother, Mitch and I simply stay out of her way, lest we end up decorated ourselves.
Lorraine not only decorates the tree, she decorates everything (pretty much) in the room. Yes, those are Santa and elf hats on skulls… Dinosaur? But of course!
We are located in Westland which is in the great State of Michigan, smack dab in between Detroit Metro Airport, Ann Arbor, Detroit and Dearborn (roughly 25 minutes from any one those destinations for those who are Michigan savvy).
Many of the decorations have been in our family for decades and believe it or not, she adds new things every year… No wonder she loves decorating even the outside trees as well as creating trees out of practically ANYTHING in the house!
Here is a shot of an unused picnic area at a local park… I must say that when the weather is warm and inviting, cheery partiers are everywhere. Not so much this day.
Closing the evening’s curtains as the moon prepares to rise. The clouds are falling into formation in the soon to be midnight sky. Deep blue the night from bright of the day and oh so discreet our yawns, as Sol slips away.
