Thoughts-Praises-Memories-Regrets- Who I am? Who I was meant to be! This is for my Daughters, Sons and Grandchildren - I would want them to learn of the things in my life that were most important to me. I am prayerful that they will know of my passions. I wish to share some of the music of all types that touch me, that tugs at my deepest emotions and express longings of intimacy and love. When words fail me music opens windows to the expressive soul.
Testify is a visual poem adapted from the essay "Testament of a Fisherman" published in 1964 by Michigan author John Voelker.
Over 50 years later we filmed this video on and around the author's home waters of Marquette County on Michigan's Upper Peninsula because we believe the pure trout waters and relaxed pace of life of this region haven't changed much.
Today the need for time on a river and reconnection with nature are more important than ever--and Voelker's words still ring true.
