Big Top, Big Heart

Even as host of Tent Show Radio, I consider myself a late-arriving guest participating in a canvas tradition pegged to the hard work and volunteer efforts of people long predating me. I always say I find it easy to brag on the tent because I was a ticket-buying fan long before I ever set foot on the canvas-draped stage.

I use the term “canvas” specifically, as it is a critical part of the Lake Superior Big Top Chautauqua tradition. Last year it became clear that a new tent was needed. Longtime supporter Don Funk has stepped forward to make a remarkable matching commitment that will add two dollars to every one dollar donated for a limited time. The details are here.

Thank you to Don and all of those who have pitched in to pitch the new tent. Nothin’ like the scent of fresh canvas.

Showing off my diastema with my friend and publisher Kathy from Wisconsin Historical Society Press (they published my latest book, From the Top). We were selling books and meeting writers and readers. It was a good day.

Spoke at a writers conference last week, speaking at a logger’s conference next week. That’s my deal in a nutshell, and sure grateful for it.

In preparation for next week, I’ve revisited this post (it really doesn’t help, I still have the hands of a typist).
