Timothy Goodwin - Author, Artist, Musician and Professor
As earth thaws around the northland, birds and wildflowers return. It feels in many was as though I am the one awakening from hibernation and returning from a long migration. The contents of this past year have been heavy to carry, and the future has yet to determine if this weight will be lessened. It is during times like these I look within, search for those tethers of joyful remembrance and hope with which I can pull this weight. This is often assisted by the guidance of others who feel and experience life in similar ways. Artists, musicians and authors. Oftentimes the outcasts.
Timothy Goodwin is a prime example. A Renaissance Man if ever you will meet one.
