L’Arbre Tordu. Crooked Tree. In the lore of the Native Americans who walked in this region of Northern Michigan where I now live, a crooked tree pointed the direction along a path to reach a destination. I hope this forum will serve the same purpose-to show the way to simplicity and understanding on a range of topics. I am interested in provoking thought and discussion that goes deeper into the why and how of things. I hope you will join me. Thank you.
