Michigan Rising

Michael Feehan's avatar Michael Feehan

MICHIGAN RISING Glaciers subside, and remaining are the beginnings of the land, built upon fossilized rocks; which themselves, precede recorded history and capsulate life of another predawn era. It is a surreal time; where even gravity is developing, and the land arises against its docile forces, in pristine surroundings. It is in this environment that our State arose and evolved into the vast peninsulas that it is today; where Man maps by hand in an even greater surreal grid of lines and borders, claiming his brief tenure. In this geologic tick of the clock, and as temporary landlords, we have the responsibility to maintain its purity and natural qualities. It is within our power to safeguard the land and waters, to hold them in trust, and to rectify the damage incurred. Michael Feehan
