I made the wise decision this year to not jump in what was passing for Lake Michigan. I did however make an appearance under the guise of testing out my new Canon. Even though clear water was between 50 and 100 yards from shore, apparently it takes more than that to stop the
foolish hardy souls from trying to find enough water to baptize the New Year's, baby.
It wouldn't surprise me if charitable giving increases next weekend, along with greater empathy for others. Dickens' A Christmas Carol had that effect on readers 170 years ago and likely is still true today. Likewise, Christmas at Carroll, next weekend's awe-inspiring concert in Carroll's Shattuck Music Center has always had a positive transformative effect on me. I've been attending for years, and if I weren't in the spirit before the concert, then I sure was three hours later!
I feel bad for the couple in their 60s who were severely burned Tuesday morning during a fire to their Summit Ave. house. Am hoping for a speedy recovery for them.
