My cousin Harriet takes top notch photos.  They are really, super brilliant.  She knows all about lighting and exposure and she has pro equipment; but that’s not what makes them great.  I like to construct things, but I don’t have the creative brain that Harriet does.  She is extremely creative and she has an excellent eye for spotting awesomeness. It is a huge gift to be able to imagine things that are not yet there, to use something for a fresh purpose, to create something that didn’t exist before.  Not only does she use her creative powers, but she uses them in a way that has not been done before.  She’s most famous for her amazing portraits, even the Sudbury Star knows what’s what.


If being talented, creative and artistic was not enough, she’s also a really top notch person: super nice, fabulously fun, great dancer, best friend to all furry creatures…and she always has time to extreme hang out with me when I come to visit.  Awesome!

After all that, you can understand my glee to see Harriet when I arrived in Red Lake for a visit.  We spent most of my time there hanging out: going for coffee, dancing at the Balmer, photo shoots, eating really awful pineapple upside-down chocolate pumpkin cake and really awesome sweet potato fries.  Even thought we did not write any raps in which every line rhymed with ‘shit’, go cliff jumping or lose our voices singing George McCrea’s “Rock Your  Baby” on top of the water tower, it was most definitely a vacation well spent.

Sudbury is lucky to currently have one of my most favorite people in the whole world.

Does anyone actually like candy corn?
