I have yet to meet Joy St. Claire, the photographer we wrote about in the article “Sleeping Bear at the Golden Globes.” the February issue of Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine and whose calendar, Poetry of Fog, that includes photos of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, was included in swag bags at the 2012 Golden Globes in Beverly Hills, California. But we spoke on the phone for the story and now correspond by email occasionally. Joy lives in Ohio, but discovered the healing beauty of Sleeping Bear some years back after going through a tough time in her life. She visits whenever she can now both to relax and trek our stunning landscape for photos.
Here’s the update she sent me after the Golden Globes.:
I just wanted to send a post Golden Globes update! There was a lot of buzz & excitement over the event & gift lounge. I wanted to share this blogpost from my blog today. Some celebrities (including Joe Mantegna) are featured with my artwork!!
