The Big Lake They Call Gitche Gumee

Today is the 35th anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. You can read the story here. This song is a family "favorite" of sorts; my parents were both big Gordon Lightfoot fans, and my father, a fisherman and hunter, always enjoyed this particular tune. I couldn't tell you why; maybe the historical context, the drama, who knows? But, we grew up hearing this song, and he used a lyric in an article he wrote about nearly being shipwrecked himself: "Does anyone know where the love of God goes when the waves turn the minutes to hours?"

So, for my weird little family :) here's our weird little song.

    "So I walk like I'm on a mission, 'cuz that's the way I groove. I've got more and more to do, I've got less and less to prove. It took me too long to realize that I don't take good pictures 'cuz I have the kind of beauty that moves..." Ani D.
