After several years of revising this manuscript from Rosalie’s 2008 Artist-in-Residency in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness area near Ontonagon, Michigan, her essay “In Dan’s Cabin” has finally been published by the Still Point Arts Quarterly in the themed issue “My Deep Love of Place.” Rosalie said, “I hope you enjoying reading this essay as much as I enjoyed writing it.” Access a PDF copy at this link: Still Point Arts Quarterly “My Deep Love of Place”.
